Tiree Christmas Parties Committee held their Senior Citizens’ Party in An Talla on Saturday 12 December.
Iain Cameron, Chairperson, started off proceedings by warmly welcoming everyone and thanked his committee who fund-raised throughout the year and all those who contributed in any other way in making the Christmas Functions so successful. Mrs Janet Brown, Balephuil, then cut the cake (this year again an “Evelyn” work of art) prior to an absolutely delicious meal, ably prepared by Josie and her An Talla team, and served by a jovial committee and helpers.
Refreshments and mints were also included in this repast – we were sure spoilt! Into the bargain there were many free raffle prizes distributed by a very tall and cheery Santa! A busy schedule is ahead of him yet. Also, throughout the evening young Colin MacKinnon kept us tapping with his piping – well done! Aren’t we fortunate on Tiree to have such musical talent.
All in all a good time was had by all – being a senior citizen for a year or two now I can sit back and enjoy – which I did!
P.s. Forgot to mention that this year we had an additional act – “Stand Up” Bingo organised by Josie – very entertaining!
