ROS Social Event – Tue 25 Feb

Wednesday, 5 February 2014

Since it has been a while since we’ve met, the committee thought it would be nice to have a get-together/social event, to which all members, Vice Presidents, family and friends are welcome.

It will be held at Community House, Easemore Road on Tuesday 25 February at 7.30pm.

It’s going to be an ‘American Supper’ which (for any new members who don’t know the term) means everybody brings something to share with everybody else, and we put it all on the table and make a buffet out of it. You can bring savoury items or desserts – all will be welcome. (The Society will provide the plates, cutlery, cups and drinks).

We’ll have a bit of fun during the evening, but mainly it will be chance to just get together and enjoy time with friends.

Hope to see you all there.
