CULLEN and DISTRICT SPECIAL NEEDS ASSOCIATION
Our 35th Annual Christmas Mass and Party took place on Saturday Dec.5th in Cullen Community Centre. In spite of the wind and rain we were thrilled with the turn out from afar as Mallow and Kanturk to Newmarket, Millstreet and Gneeveguila. A large number of our special friends with their families, friends or carers attended.
Mass was celebrated by Canon Jack Fitzgerald, and the local Choir added to the celebration with appropriate Christmas hymns and carols. Good food, music and dancing kick-started the festive season for all present, whose energy and enthusiasm could put many to shame. Our DJ Andrew Lynch supplied some wonderful disco music and contributed in no small way to the success of the party. As usual each guest received a gift. Dr.Pat Casey had a busy evening as he made the presentations and he thanked everybody who helped to make the Party such a success. Great credit is due to the organising committee and the many helpers who did trogan work behind the scenes to ensure that everything was in order for the evening. A new addition this year was a visit from a group of ladies from the Kanturk/Millstreet branch of the Red Cross offering hand massage and nail painting to all guests, and this was very much enjoyed and appreciated
Many thanks to all who came and supported the afternoon to make it such a success.
Cullen and District S.N.A. wish all their special friends, supporters and sponsors all the Joys and Blessings of Christmas with the best of health and happiness in the New Year
