“Gach bliadhna tha sinn a’ faicinn mar a tha an òigridh a’ fas nas misneachaile tron t-seachdain agus an togail a tha iad a’ faighinn tro choinneachadh le caraidean ùra agus na diofar chur-seachadan a tha mar phàirt den tachartas.”

“Tha coimhearsnachd Carlabhaigh a’ cur fàilte bhlàth oirnn gach bliadhna, ‘s tha sinn cho taingeil airson na taic a tha iad a’ toirt dhuinn agus don òigridh. 

“Bidh cèilidh againn le cuideachadh bho Chòisir Ghàidhlig Chàrlabhaigh Diardaoin 4 Giblean, le òrain is puirt bho chom-pàirtichean, luchd-teagaisg is luchd-stiùiridh an tachartais.
