All club members enthusiastically supported the effort but the following were to the forefront with their assistance, Patrick Mc Govern who organised a motley gang of workers, who built a chariot, and bases for the roman columns. Denis Wright and Stephen Brunton worked wonders on the ice cream van. Garry Mc Guigan made “Gold” instead of money for a change which drew many comments, the ambassador wanted it returned to Italy. Norman Whyte proved a “dab” hand at the painting. Rob Steinke wowed everybody with his artwork and portrayal of a mafia man on the stand. Alan D’Arcy managed to make air con pipes look like Roman columns. Richard Mee ploughed his way through snow drifts to make sure our Centurion arrived for the event.
Don’t forget, our auto-jumble will be taking place on Sunday the 25th of March at Kilmore Diocesan Pastoral Centre beside St. Patricks College in Cavan.
