Laragh Glendalough Active Retirement

As we have a group heading for a concert on Tuesday 4 November our monthly lunch for the month of November will take place on Tuesday November 11 in the Glenmalure Lodge at 12.45.  A big Happy Birthday to Rosalie Dumbleton who celebrated her 90th birthday over the past few days but unfortunately Rosalie broke her shoulder so we also wish her a speedy recovery. Rosalie has been a member of our group for the last few years since she moved from England to live here with her daughter and family.  She has become firmly entrenched as a prominent member of our group and has been an inspiration to us with her agility, love of music and dance and positive attitude.  We look forward to having you back with us soon Rosalie.
