    In  a first for the Club President Sam and his wife Janine invited the members and their partners to his beautiful home on the lake shore near Ballynahinch for afternoon drinks and a finger buffet to celebrate the festive season.

    The 70 or so people enjoyed wonderful hospitality with drinks  served and glasses kept topped up by waiters Patrick Coyle and PP Dale. A tasty finger buffet was served by new member Caroline and Helen Coulter with the assistance of others. Janine was ably assisted by family members both serving food and cleaning up afterwards.

    We were then entertained to Christmas songs from Joe Deery accompanied as ever by Gary Corkin to finish off a superb afternoon.

    All credit to President Sam and Janine for providing such a unique setting and first class  hospitality for all those who were fortunate enough to  attend.
