The highlight of the weekend came on Saturday night when President of Anglesboro Drama Group Tom Roche announced the recipient of the Presidents Award. In the opinion of the Judges the award went to the person who has made the greatest contribution to the promotion of drama in Anglesboro. There were huge cheers when he announced that Willie Carr was the winner. Willie has produced plays for this very hardworking group for the past three years. His work and experience has brought the group to a very high standard. All present were loud in their praises for Willie especially the cast. Many of them have remarked how evident his expertise and experience is and how it can be plainly seen in his productions. Willie is a member of the Canavour Players in Ballinvreena for thirty two years. He is a great drama man and we are proud to have him on board.
