Sunday June 24th

Annual Barbecue (2.30 pm)


Annual Barbecue 2007

Last year, the Society's annual barbecue was held at the home of Ian Broad, and our sincere thanks are due to him for his generous hospitality. This year, Norman and Anita O’Galligan, who in the past have given us so many happy Sundays in Sandymount, kindly offered to hold the barbecue in the garden of their new house in Wicklow town.
On learning of this arrangement, His Excellency Ambassador Zhang Xinsen, showing great thoughtfulness, felt that it might be difficult for some of the students and scholars to get to that venue, and he kindly offered instead to facilitate us by giving us the use of the garden at

26 Ailesbury Road, Dublin 4,

an offer which we gratefully accepted. We would like to express our warm thanks to Ambassador Zhang for this generous gesture.

The society will provide charcoal and some cooking stoves, but additional barbecue cookers are welcome. Contact Hon. Secretary if you intend to bring a cooker. Members are welcome to bring friends. Members must bring own food and drinks. As well as the Ambassador and the staff of the Embassy, we will be inviting members of the Chinese Students and Scholars Association (mostly post-graduate students), so this should again provide an enjoyable social occasion, relaxed and informal.
