NEWS AND EVENTS from YOUR Branch
getting chilly again and time to reflect on our
year and dream up some treats for 2006.
Two holidays were funded at
Badaguish adventure centre for 14 young people in 2005 and as always, thoroughly
enjoyed by all. Special thanks to the volunteer escorts. Caroline Fraser from
Lenzie told us that she especially enjoyed the bikes and walking up mountains.
She made lots of friends and would love to go again!
