Friday, 30 November at 8:00pm - Annual Tea Party: come have a cup of tea and a treat and enjoy a sociable night in Ballycallan Community Centre. This night was a major success last year and was enjoyed by all. The night is run by the ladies who organise the funeral catering in the parish, a highly valued service. Following last year’s successful night, many new items were purchased for the hall, mainly new tables. This year it is hoped to raise enough to purchase much needed new chairs. Thursday, 13 December at 8:00pm - Christmas Concert: after many years of absence from Ballycallan Community Centre the Christmas Variety Concert is to return. There is an abundance of talent in the parish and it would be a shame not to show this off to as many as possible. For anyone wishing to enter into the Variety concert please contact any of the committee members to do so.
