Duncannon ICA

The February meeting of Duncannon ICA Guild was held on February 12 with 18 members in attendance.

President Gretta passed a vote of sympathy with the Murphy family on the death of Rena Murphy and the Cox family on the death of Ita Cox. Gretta has happy memories of Rena as a member of the guild especially their participation in a drama competition in Inch hall. Ita was a founder member of senior citizens Concern, whose vision was to improve facilities for the senior members of our communities. She encouraged the guild to help at fundraising events and the St Louis Day Care Centre stands today as a testament to the work of the committees she served on for many years. A strong link between the centre and the guild continues today and Gretta encouraged members to support the coffee morning on February 19.

The greatly anticipated night out in Aldridge Lodge did not disappoint as the tasting menu served up tastes, textures and locally produced food of the highest quality. It was a night to relax, chat and enjoy the camaraderie that is so evident in the guild.

Six members availed of two hours free bowling in Leisure Max and greatly enjoyed the experience.

The exercise classes with Maureen Costello are a big hit and will continue for another four weeks.

ICA's Got Talent will be held on April 24 and plans are already in place for our participation in group singing.

Michelle Colfer, a local artist, was the guest speaker and she introduced us to the art of origami, a Japanese paper folding technique. With her guidance we succeeded in making a Valentine's heart and a butterfly. Michelle brought along a beautiful display of her work, installations in jars and picture form, suitable as gifts for many occasions.

Helena was placed in first place in the black and white portrait section of the photographic competition and Marie was first in the colour section 'old and abandoned'. Both now go forward to the national competition.

Eleanor and Bebe served a lovely tea and the raffle was won by Mgt. H., Bebe and Helena
