Arch Club Christmas Party 2016

The Arch Club Christmas Party, organised by Monaghan Lions Club, was held in the Four Seasons Hotel, on Thursday, 15th and what a party. All the trappings of Christmas season were there including Santa, who had a present for every member. A sumptuous dinner was served before Santa arrived and then when he had delivered his presents there were a number of solo artists from the club who performed. Then the music began and the dancing continued non-stop until the final number was played by John, Martin and Mickey. It was a great night and Sean McCaffrey, the MC, did a great job. Also during the night there were two presentations. The first came from Noel McCarville who had a surprise 70th birthday recently in Aghabog GFC Club rooms, organised by Seamus Kelly, Mary Alice McMahon and Noel's family, and, instead of presents, donations towards the Arch Club were accepted and the total came to €783. Noel and Seamus made the presentation. Then Danielle and Hayley McKenna ran the Dublin City Marathon and sponsorship they collected and donations made amounted to €9,000 and this was presented to the Club by Danielle. Hayley is off travelling and could not be there. Then Donal Treanor presented Danielle with a fabulous artist's drawings, created by his sister, of the two girls in appreciation. These two donations to the club will assist it in its activity for the coming year and is very much appreciated. Those who donated and those responsible for organising both events were sincerely thanked.  We would like to wish all the members of the Arch Club and families a very happy, healthy and peaceful Christmas Season and those same wishes go to the people who do such marvellous work in organising and running the Club.
