Christmas Day Swim: Christmas Day would not be the same if we did not have the Christmas Day Swim at Emy Lake. This event has been going on for over 40 years and has raised much needed funds for the disabled and mentally challenged. It has a great history of those involved and it is important that it continues. This year it will take the usual formatt. Gather at the Lake after 12. Get ready about 12.55 and the Swim starts at 1.00pm sharp. If the ice has to be broken it might not begin until 1.05!!. When it is over hopefully Castle Leslie will have supplied tasty warm soup as usual before all depart for home and the turkey. There may be a surprise guest on the day but everyone who enters the water is the real hero. Sponsorship cards are out and please be generous if you are offered the opportunity to subscribe. If you are not approached there will be a bucket at the gate for you to throw some money in. So looking forward to seeing you at Emy. It is great to see a crowd of spectators there as it gives encouragement to the brave souls to get wet. Comfort Keepers Home Care are looking for applicants to be carers in the Truagh, Emyvale and Northern Monaghan areas. Perhaps you or someone you know is looking for a new career in 2019. You can make enquiries to Anete on 041-6871002. Full training is provided. All work is in the local area caring for local older people. Christmas Coffee Morning: Our Wednesday Morning Tea/Coffee continues on December 19th starting at 10.30am. We hope to sing a couple of seasonal songs/hymns and enjoy the usual very tasty scones and cake served up by Audrey and staff.  Silver Hill will be our sponsors and we look forward to hearing a little about the company for which Emyvale is now famous. We had a great morning last week and thanks to Glynn William, Centra Emyvale, for joining with us and providing the sponsorship. We had a very interesting mornig as Noeleen Loughran, on a break from her demanding work in Uganda,  came along to tell us about her work and the conditions in which she is providing exceptional medical and human aid to so many thousands in what is reported as the largest Refugee Camp in the world. Pat Holland, who is just back from two weeks working and helping out there, described the conditions to us and spoke very highly of the work being done by Noeleen and the respect and esteem with which she is held by the people there and how she has saved so many lives. Everone was in awe of the work Noeleen is doing and all wish her a happy Christmas and God’s Blessing and every success with her work.  Also present was Paul Gallier from Monaghan Sports Partnership who is hoping to run various types of sessions in the North Monaghan Hub in Emyvale Leisure Centre and he encouraged all to seriously consider taking part as all sessions are geared to suit specific age groups and bring many health benefits. He left forms for people to suggest types of classes that people would like to see bring organised. See poster below. We hope he gets a good response. Once again we are very grateful to Audrey and staff for their attention to our wants each week.
