Alzheimer's Tea Day.
Its that time of year again, when the Alzheimer Society holds its countrywide annual Tea Day on the 9th May next.   
This community will be doing its bit to raise funds for this worthy cause, when it hosts two Tea Mornings.  The first will be in Toonagh Hall on Thursday, 16th May, from 9.30a.m. to 12.30 p.m., and the second will be in Ruan Community Centre on Wednesday, 8th May, from 10.00a.m. to 12.30p.m.  
As all monies raised in Clare will be used in the county to alleviate the plight of people who have Alzheimers Disease, the support of the community is very much appreciated.
