Menstrie Community Council
Message from the Community Council Chairman, 24 June 2009
Menstrie Gala Day and Fete week proved to be an even bigger success than last year, with more people attending the weeks' events and a superb turnout on Gala Day.
The weather was very kind to us and provided an impetus for people to stay longer (and spend more!) at the stalls around the park.
I have been warmed by the comments we have received from everyone who has spoken to us about the day: Hopefully we can do even better next year.
I would like to take this chance to say "Thank you" to everyone who made the day go so well, from the Police to the guys behind the bar and the girls on the burger stall.
I would also like to say a huge "Thank you" to all the team on the Gala Committee and to the volunteers who assisted on the day. Without these people the day would not happen.
To all who enjoyed the week's events and Gala Day, I say "Come and get involved next year. It really gives you a great feeling when your project comes together."
