Harvest Thanksgiving 2015
Harvest Thanksgiving Weekend was held on September 12th and 13th. This year, for the first time, it included the Blessing of Pets on the Sunday morning. Many thanks to all who donated and sold produce, to those who prepared the church so beautifully, to those who gave the loan of the marquee, to those who erected it and took it down again, to those who provided the hospitality, to those who cleaned and tidied up afterwards and to all who were associated in any way with our Harvest Thanksgiving. It is all very much appreciated. €1,036.80 was raised.
Fun Day 2015
Straide Fun Day was held on August 16th last. Despite the dark clouds, the rain stayed away and didn’t dampen the enjoyment of what was a wonderful day. There was a great turnout and no shortage of entries for the various competitions. The standard in the Cake of the Parish Competition was particularly high. The Townland Challenge competition was keenly contested also as was the sheaf throwing competition. A great day was had by all. Thanks and gratitude to the organisers who, again this year, put so much effort into the day. Roll on Straide Fun Day 2016.
