HOLESTONE YFC have had an extremely busy and successful year.
To round off the club’s year, the annual parents and friends evening was held on Tuesday April 12 in Donegore Church Hall. This was the first Parents Night in over two years so it was great to see a packed hall with friends, family and supporters of Holestone YFC celebrate the club’s successes.
The evening consisted of two club sketches, one being Ten Pet Lambs and the other Market Naked Attraction. Members performed these sketches providing the audience with plenty of laughs throughout. The club would like to thank Tammy Hoy for all her help behind the scenes in producing the sketches.
The audience heard of the club’s busy year from club secretary Alexandra McConnell, and members were awarded their proficiency certificates.
Guest Speaker for the evening was Hannah Kirkpatrick, YFCU Vice President and thanks must go to Hannah for giving up her time to join the club on the evening.
Members, friends and family got up to date on the latest scandal within the club, safe to say there were a few red faces.
The night saw members receiving awards for their successes in the past year.
