As the Easter Egg Hunt came to an end, parishioners started to make their way to the Old School where a very welcome cup of tea or coffee was provided by the Parish Social Committee along with a variety of seasonal goodies including hot cross buns and ginger bread bunnies and some chocolate treats too, now that Lent is over!
Once everyone was well refreshed, Father Neeson was called upon to give the numbers a good spin in the specially constructed spinning drum which was hand made by one of the parish’s own, St Joseph – the carpenter, Hugh Brown. Father welcomed everyone to the inaugural Parish of Ardkeen Silver Circle Draw and then proceeded to pull out the first winning number. A total of nine lucky numbers were drawn as this was not only the first monthly draw but also the special Easter draw.
