I noticed in the audience, Rose Sharkey (comedienne) a couple of Barbershop Hamonisers, & a couple of ladies from the Rascals, it is so nice to see other entertainers come along & support the shows that we do, i then noticed in the audience was Dave Brackley & his wife Vee - Dave used to do Elvis in the group for many years, but had to retire this year due to ill health, but he is still our Treasurer & still collects our Monthly Subs of 5 euros,to help pay for cables & equipment which needs replacing, maybe some kind person will come forward & offer ?
A big thank you must go to my friend Andy Ormiston ( a Local Historian ) who always helps me on what Charities to Support & Trust, he explained to the audience all about Apanee as he was involved with them over 10 years ago.
Also a big thank you to the President, Secretary, Staff & Helpers of Apanee for attending our shows & selling special Apanee Flowers
