Sunday, August 4th
Early on Sunday August 4th, Councillor Martin Brett, Mayor of Kilkenny visited the Summer School.
With a kind – and wise – word for everyone, he visited with every class and session encouraging everybody to keep up the work of learning to build community and spend their lives working hard to serve others.
As well as the visit from the First Citizen of Kilkenny, Sunday saw Tom Price begin his series of thought provoking talks and Moojan Momen give a very interesting talk on Power and the Baha’i Community.
All Sunday morning laughter and applause rang from Butler Hall as the speakers engaged and amused their audience.
The children were busy in their classes.
Junior Youth and Youth were engaged in their sessions.
Sunday afternoon was mostly free and so, the tea and chat and after lunch relaxation were just about to begin when the electricity in the Kilkenny area went down and every alarm in the School rang out.
Instead of gathering in the Coffee Shop, everybody gathered on the tennis courts as part of an impromptu fire drill.
So people chatted and socialised on the tennis courts instead.
Eventually the power returned.
The sun shone
But (as usual) it also rained…
And the Summer School 2013 Ukulele Orchestra began rehearsals…
