Panto in the County!

For the last few years the Athol Recreation Committee has organized a yearly bus trip to Stirling to see the Christmas Naughty Panto.  We will not be doing that this year for a variety of reasons, one being that we have a wonderful panto in our own backyard.  Show dates are limited and tickets are selling fast.  We encourage you to get yours today and support our local theatrical community.
