St Patrick’s Day Drive-In thanks for the memories
Captain Paddy and I, would like to say a huge ‘Thank You’ to everyone involved in making Saint Patrick’s Day, 2017, a very special day.
We would particularly like to thank the Ladies’ and Men’s Committees, the Social Committee, Gay, the office staff, and the Catering and Bar staff for all their help in the weeks and months leading up to our big day.
A special mention too must go to Brian Lillis for allowing us the use of a magnificent Mustang on the day, and to Patricia for supplying everyone’s favourite ice-creams.
Bill Coughlan did a fantastic job supplying the sound on the first tee box and thanks also to Greg Harkness for the lighting in the bar, and supplying the fancy ‘Britany Spears’ style microphones for the evening speeches!
But the biggest and most heartfelt thanks goes to the members of Newlands for turning up in such big numbers to show support on a very cold, wet and miserable day. We cannot tell you how much we appreciate it.
The cheers from the balcony as we drove up the avenue, the numbers that gathered to greet us in the car park and the banter on the first tee contributed to a truly memorable occasion, one that will remain with us for the rest of our lives.
Our families and friends had a fantastic time and were overwhelmed by the friendliness of Newlands’ members and the warmth of their welcome.
Thank you for making, the 17th of March, 2017 a day we will never forget.
Captain Siobhan and Captain Paddy
