Sister Helen’s prayers for a fine day lat Sunday were certainly heard and answered.  Another very successful Harvest Festival Day was held at Dick and Bessie Fortune’s farm at Doonooney last Sunday afternoon.  Despite many other attractions a good crowed turned out to enjoy the Vintage Working Day and view a full field of ploughmen (and women!) competing in the various classes, see the Nostalgic sight of the “Old Threshing Mill” in action, watch the lovely Irish Dancing provided by Margo’s little stars and enjoy the many other games and side-show that provided the ideal atmosphere for the afternoon.  Great credit is due to the Shamrock Vintage Club and the Adamstown Harvest Festival Committee under Chairman, John Power, for all their work and effort they put into making the event so successful.

The Financial Details will be announced at he next meeting on Thursday 7th of October.  If you were not able to attend last Sunday and wish to make a donation, please contact either Dave Power or Ann Jackman, Joint-Treasurer’s, during the coming week.

The Organising Committee wish to thank everyone for their support, in particular the Landowners, Ploughing and Vintage participants, the Sponsor, the Judges, all the men and women that worked so hard throughout the day and all who kindly donated soup, sandwiches, and confectionery, and last but by no means least, a special “Thank You” to everyone that made the effort to be present and gave a donation, which will all be going to help people much less fortunate than ourselves.
P S: See the “Standard” for all the ploughing results.  The full list of Sponsors will appear in the “Newsletter” later.

Angels keep a watchful eye
And help us as the days go by


Take time to laugh,
it is the music
of the soul.

Take time to think,
it is the source
of power

Take time to play,
it is the source
of perpetual your.

Take time to read,
it is the fountain
of wisdom

Take time to pray,
it is the greatest
power of earth.
