The Western Alzheimer’s coffee morning will take place this Friday.
The popular event will take place on November 25th at Roscommon Golf Club, between 10.30 am and 1.00 pm. It has not taken place since 2019 due to the pandemic and the organisation is really looking forward to welcoming people back.
The Roscommon Football manager Davy Burke will be the guest speaker and there will be a number of paintings by local artist Ian Marks for sale at the coffee morning. Mr Marks will also be present to chat about them.
The St Stephen’s Day walk or run event will also be officially launched at the coffee morning. This 5k-10k event, which also has not taken place in three years, takes in beautiful Mote Park and is the perfect way to start preparing for the new year. Volunteers and stewards for the event would be greatly appreciated for what will be a day of music and fun.
