On Tuesday 15th October Derrybrusk Branch held a very successful Visitors Night. The speaker was Brian Rankin reciting poetry which he writes himself, and laughter was plentiful! He had poetry books on sale the proceeds of which go to Africare, the charity he supports. The amount raised from the sale of the books was 640.

Dr Knox gave an inspiring epilogue on "The Seeds we Sow Together" and Kathryn Little some appropriate pieces.

Next year, on Monday 20 October 2014, Derryvullen and Garvary will be hosting the Visitors Night in Derryvullen South Hall when the speaker will be the All-Ireland President, Phyllis Grothier.
