The event will commence with a historical walk around Anglesboro village which will be led by Michael Lewis. On Saturday night comedian Jon Kenny will perform in the hall in Anglesboro for which should be a wonderful nights entertainment. This will be preceeded by a special gathering Mass in St. Patrick’s Church. On Sunday afternoon the highlight of the weekend will be the re- enacting of the closing of the creamery over thirty years ago, which first opened around ninety years ago.
