__________June Timahoe News__________

Timahoe Active Age Group was treated to a medley of culture, drama and music, at the May Get-Together. TIMAHOE DRAMA WORKS, under the baton of Elaine Kane, entertained the hugely appreciative audience with their recent production of "FIDDLER ON THE ROOF". Apart from their very obvious musical talents, they impressed all with their ability to adapt and improvise. Space in Kelly's Lounge was at a premium, yet the large cast took it all in their stride and staged a spectacular show, like true professionals. Using the floor space in the Lounge, weaving their' way through the audience, these young actor's brought the show TO us, rather than performing FOR US. The audience was spellbound and the well-deserved applause at the end was heartfelt.... and deafening! We thank Elaine and congratulate the children for transporting us from the wet dreary May weather, for one night, with their magical performance. We would like to acknowledge the supporters of the weekly Bonus No. Apart from the monthly Member's draw, the Bonus Sheet is the source of funding for our Active Age Group. It has financed summer outings, our St. Patrick's Day Trip and Christmas Party. Without your support our excursions and events would be hugely curtailed. Your continued support will be greatly appreciated.

The Table Quiz will be held on the last Friday, as usual, 28th June. Take your seats at 9.00 p.m. Sharpen your wits and your pencils and prepare for action, as "Executive Force" poses Question 1, Round 1 at 9.30p.m.

Our fifth ANNUAL FIELD DAY will be held in the grounds of Timahoe N.S., by kind permission of Fr. Ramsbottom and Seamus Lynch, on Sunday, 23rd. June. We can guarantee you and your family a great afternoon, with many new and novel events. We greatly appreciate your help, donations and support over the five years, since Timahoe Community Development Council was founded, in 1997. A member of our committee will call to your house soon, seeking donations of bottles, books and bric-a-brac. Every little helps!

The Field Day is our MAJOR ANNUAL FUNDRAISER towards achieving our main goal, building a Community House in Timahoe, to meet and serve the many needs of our rapidly growing community.

Please come along, at 2.30 p.m., on Sunday, 23rd June, to enjoy yourself and to support our efforts. O.A.K. PARTNERSHIP AND KILDARE V.E.C

Many thanks to Paula McEvoy for researching, compiling and organising the
Car Treasure Trail, held on Sunday, 23rd, May. Excitement ran high, as each team left with the 50 clues, which took them in a loop through Clane, Sallins, Carragh and back to Timahoe. Timing was important, but accuracy was essential. Excitement ran high, as answers were disputed and debated, but all agreed it was a most enjoyable afternoon.
First Prize: Gail, Paddy & family
Second Prize: Trish, Gerry & Family.

The Parenting Teens Course held it's sixth and final session on Thursday, 3Oth May. We wish to acknowledge O.A.K., whose funding made this course possible and also, Brenda Kennedy, facilitator, who presented a structured and informative course.

The Personal Development Course, facilitated by Catherine Leonard, was enlightening and enjoyable. Kelly's Kitchen was transformed into a safe haven for the eight sessions, with gentle candlelight, soothing, scented oils and relaxing background music. Catherine's calm manner lent a serenity that added to the overall atmosphere. This course was organised by the Women's Group and funded by the dept. of Social, Community & Family Affairs. Each and every one of the participants benefited from the course content, the support offered by the group and the ambience of the setting.
