Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann
Promoting the music, song, dance, and language
Happy New Year to all!
Our newly elected Executive Board has been busy organizing a fundraiser
for the branch. Curry-Seery has a small budget and we are seeking innovative
ideas. We are looking to you, the members, on how to create and use that
wealth. As you know, your association with Comhaltas is more that a magazine
and membership card. Therefore, your involvement and support will only
help us improve on what we are today, and grow beyond tomorrow's expectations.
Fred Berckmann, Chairperson
Remember to teach your children your heritage;
otherwise, someone else may teach them theirs.
