Valerie was speaking at a Harvest Service in Castledawson Church
and it was there that Valerie received an invitation to bring the bus to
the Castledawson Parade.
It was a lovely evening and the bus was parked at the end of the parade.
James Johnston helped get set up.
There were 22 bands at the parade.
It was good to see people we hadn't seen for a while. It was hard to believe we were talking about Christmas -
to be more exact the Christmas tree festival.
Gemma Boyd was our photographer for the night, she is a member of Drumnaglough Flute Band.
It was a fairly quiet night but some good conversation. A big thank you to Christopher Reid for the invitation.
