CASINO NIGHT AT ST. PAT'S
On Saturday, November 8th we had our council's
annual Casino Night. The doors in the Parish Hall opened up at 5:30
pm. and dinner was served at 6:00 pm. We had numerous gaming tables set
up, poker, black jack, roulette, and slot machines etc galore.
In addition to gambling there was a delicious Italian dinner consisting of Baked
Ziti, Sausage, Garlic Bread, and Salad. Libations were
available for a nominal charge from our resident bartender Dick
McCarthy. You of all this for the low, low price of only
$20.00, which also included $50.00 in gambling money for the various tables.
Winners got to bid on some fine prizes at the end of the night,
including dinners, weekend holidays, and sporting apparel. A
few lucky people got to share some "big bucks" from our 50/50
drawing and raffle. We thank the companies who sponsored our
gambling tables, including Lighting Solutions, Village Inn, Silver
Queen and Wards Seafood. Our thanks go out to Grand
Knight, Bob Gibbia and all the loyal Knights who devoted their time
and efforts to make this the best Casino Night ever.
