40th Anniversary Celebrations in Nenagh Citizens Information Centre
Nenagh CIC has just celebrated 40 years of service to the community. The anniversary celebrations were held in the Pastoral Centre, Nenagh. Invited guests included founder members, former volunteers, representatives of the community, statutory, and voluntary organisations that work closely with the volunteers and staff in Nenagh CIC on a regular basis to provide an excellent service to the community. Mary Plunkett Development Manager of Co. Tipperary CIS was MC for the afternoon. Guest speakers included Toni Gleeson, Chairperson Co. Tipperary CIS, Rose Morris Regional Manager CIB, and Mike Roycroft Volunteer Organiser in the centre. We were delighted to welcome Alan Kelly T.D. Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government who addressed the gathering to acknowledge the excellent service provided by the dedicated volunteers and staff. He noted that it was very important that it is an independent service, and he congratulated everyone involved.
Presentations were made to four founder members including Mary Finn, Judge Mary Martin, Tony O’Driscoll, and John Foley who continues to be an active volunteer in the centre today. Rose Morris presented a plaque to Mike Roycroft to mark the occasion. Toni Gleeson launched a beautiful book which is a record of many milestones and achievements through the years. Official proceedings drew to a close when Mike Roycroft and Mary J. Hogan cut the birthday cake. It was a wonderful occasion and enjoyed by all.
