DUNGARVAN HILL WALKING CLUB 20TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS,
On the 3rd February 2015, a special Club meeting was held in the Tudor House as part of the celebrations to mark the formation of the Club in 1995. The present Committee sent out invitations to both the founders and past club members to attend the meeting. Almost 40 people turned up on the night, past and present members coming together to reminisce about the past 20 years. Richard Dykes, the present Chairman had organised a slide show of past walks, meetings,and holidays, to entertain those present. What about those hairdos!!
FIRST WALK. February 1995
The first walkers met outside Lawlors Hotel at 2.30 pm sharp, and Colligan woods was the location for a walk of 6 miles in length. Leaflets of several pages were produced for individual walks.
Back in 1995, the Club offered Fitness, Friendship Fun and that has not changed in this year of 2015. Following the presentation by Richard, a delicious celebratory cake was cut and along with tea, coffee and mouth-watering buns made by the Club Secretary, Catherine Hayes, a great time was had by all.
