Mullabrack Girls Friendly Society recently celebrated their 50th Anniversary with a series of events.

The local GFS was founded in 1965 by the late Rev Frank Noel and Mrs Noel, and the late Margaret Kilpatrick. Margaret McMullan has continued to serve as President since 1981.

Thanks to the continued help and prayers of Rev Canon Neville Hughes and Maureen Hughes, along with the dedicated work of the team of leaders, the Group continues to flourish.

Mullabrack GFS 50th Celebrations commenced with a Church Service on Sunday, March 8. The Special Address was by GFS Chaplin Rev Dorothy McVeigh and attended by leaders from all over the Dioceses including Lady Christine Eames.

The Offertory Collection was on behalf of GFS World Project and Missionaries. Afternoon Tea followed in the Church Hall.

Celebrations continued on Friday, March 20, with the Annual Parents Night. The special guests were Paul Clarke from UTV Live and Reatha Hassan a founder member.

Paul Clark proved a great hit with the girls posing cheerfully for selfies and mingling with the audience. Overall, a great success.

The Belfast Indoor Ski and Adventure Centre “We are Vertigo” was the venue for an enjoyable outing after which members and leaders enjoyed a meal at Edenmore Golf and Country Club.

This brought the Mullabrack GFS Celebrations to a close.
