a wonderful display and further congratulated them on reaching
this important milestone in the history of the Company.
On Saturday night, members past and present
met for a meal in Dunmurry Golf Club and enjoyed a great evening
of fun and fellowship, sharing many recollections of happy
memories of 40 years of Derryvolgie Parish Girls� Brigade.
