Glenties Notes on November 3rd 2005

The annual Witches Fancy Dress Ball that was held last Sunday night in the Highlands Hotel has been a great success as usual. A lot of effort is put into the costumes and this year was no exception. The Glenties Traders Association would like to thank all those who contributed to this success. The money raised will go towards the Christmas Lights, which cost approx. €7,000. Fund raising Boxes for the Christmas Lights will be placed in business premises in the town in the next few weeks so please give generously as we all look forward to the town being lit up for Christmas.
