Remember Us Update

April 21, 2015 0

Remember us ran a very successful Easter camp with 100 members and their families participating in it.  The weather was fantastic.  We had a day out in Dublin Zoo, Newbridge House and farm where members went on an Easter egg hunt, played games and saw the many animals on display. We also went to Tayto Park and the members had a brilliant day out and came home wrecked !! but happy

remember_us_special_needs_group_144x97Our Cool rocker members and their families went on a family respite break to the Connacht hotel in Galway. The trip saw the members go shopping, bowling and sight seeing.  There was music in the bar each night and the dance floor was full Parents got a chance to relax and share information.

Activities for the coming weeks include, dance, snag golf, table cricket, Kids Bricks, stretch n grow, yoga, arts n crafts Bokwa dance exercise, tag rugby, media lab, visit to scouts,  gymnastics,  Disco, Music session, a trip to Funtasia Bettystown for bowling, play and rides, a trip to Weston Airport for a party and more.  What a social life !!!!!!!!!!!!  A big thank you to all our amazing volunteers for giving up their time and supporting our members in their various activities/outings.  Thanks to all the tutors and venues for their support.
