Bray Tidy Towns are running a family fun day in the Little Flower Hall from 2pm to 5pm on Saturday 24th September.
They are looking for cakes for their cake stand so if any service users, staff or units would like to donate a cake or something else that is baked and delicious please let me know and I promise I won’t eat them.
Some of our clients are valued volunteers with Bray Tidy Towns so it would be great if their units could support them to contribute.
Contact Mick on 0866001031.

AS I lay on my bed
I think of the love of our life
A simple word of thanks
Can say so many things
To show how I appreciate
The Joy that someone brings
we stop and think of our loved ones in our life
We can pray for our Mother and Father
DAY BY DAY I ASK JESUS
TO COME INTO MY HEART
TO SHOW ME HIS LOVE IN MY LIFE
MAY LORD BLESS THE PEOPLE THAT READ
Friday the 30th of September is National Day of Volunteering so why not celebrate 2011 European Year of Volunteering by making your mark and getting staff and service users to contribute their time and efforts to a once off project on this date. I am sure that there are a lot of causes/charities close to people’s hearts so why not engage in something fun so as to raise funds and awareness for these special causes.
Please let me know of any plans and I can get the Wicklow Volunteer Centre involved also so that we may be able to involve other members of the community and/or get some recognition for all efforts made by SHS volunteers.

Congratulations to all the artists that displayed their work last week at the art exhibition in association with Elavon.
Connect are opening a Christmas shop for one week during December to display and sell any arts and crafts which our service users have worked on through the year in Connect on a self employment basis. We would welcome any other service user who has also worked on something a long these lines to come and join in.
I know its only September however this gives any other service user the chance to develop something for December should they want to get involved.
The shop is situated in Arklow and is on the main street which is a great way to promote integration and bring talented service users together with similar interests
Following on from the fantastic work that Hostelworld.com and Difference Days did with Sunbeam last Friday, Denis O'Reilly from Difference Days will feature at 3pm on Mooney Goes Wild radio show on RTE.
