“SOUNDS OF ADVENT” – THANK YOU
Millstreet Restoration Committee sincerely thanks each and everyone who supported our recent “Sounds of Advent”. The total proceeds raised were €4,833. The night would not have been possible without the help of the following: those who gave so willingly of their time to clean the church, those who sold tickets, Kingdom Catering for looking after both choirs (free of charge) with a meal before and after the recital, Millstreet GAA for use of the hall, and those who assisted with parking and stewarding on the night. To our Choir special thanks for the hard work during the weeks before – you did us proud!
