FIRST MONDAY DECEMBER
Our December First Monday, 5th December will be a social evening in the West County Hotel which will include supper/refreshments. As we need to have an indication of the number of members who will attend, please contact Michael Duff on [email protected] or 087-2578785 to register for the event.
Yet again, we are asking members to seriously consider putting their name forward to help in the organisation of even one event on the IVVCC calendar. To ensure that our events are of a high standard and good value, in addition to being an enjoyable social activity, we do need new and energetic input from the members.

Renewal notices for 2017 membership will shortly be issued by email to all members currently on our membership database and will be posted to members who have not, as yet, provided an email address.
