NMSS Party: On Thursday, October 31st 2019 the North Monaghan Social Services held its weekly Get-together in Emyvale Leisure Centre and as this was Halloween there was some Halloween additions for the occasion. This event began back in 1988 and has been running ever since, which is great creit to all the volunteers who give of their time every Thursday to provide this amenity for senior citizens. Indeed looking back at photos of those early days it is sad to see how many of them have passed away over the years. Some great characters and some quiet reserved men and women have attended but all contributed to the friendly atmosphere that is noticeable every week. Then too there are a number of the committed volunteers ho have also gone to their eternal reward and there are some volunteers who have been there from the start and continue to make a big contribution. However new blood is always welcome and anyone who would like to offer their help can get in touch by just coming in to the Centre on Thursday and having a word with Mick or any of the others. It is not heavy work but there is a great satisfaction to be got from helping out. We must also acknowledge all the musicians and singers who have provided the entertainment each week and also those who came to speak to the gathering about a chosen subject from Personal security to health matters and all in between. Then too this event would not carry on were it not for those who attend and enjoy the meal and the chat and the entertainment. It is a lovely way to spend an hour or two each Thursday and your presence can brighten up the week for someone else. There are plenty of tables and chairs and the committee will ensure you get plenty of good food to eat, so why not go along and enjoy and you don’t have to commit to it every week but once there you will want to go back. You will be very welcome. Below we have some photos from last week and some children who attended to add to the Halloween atmosphere. Well done.
