DAY DINNER DANCE - A BIG GREEN HIT
On March 14, 2015 The Knights of Columbus had their annual St.
Patrick's Day Dinner Dance and it was a sea of GREEN. The event was held at St. Patrick's Parish Hall,
starting at 6:00 pm. The bill of fair will consisted
of naturally, corned beef, cabbage, white potatoes, carrots, and
Irish soda bread. For desert there were two Knights of
Columbus sheet cakes. A full cash bar was be available, with
Dick McCarthy as bartender. Irish and Rock N' Roll music
music was provided by Bill's Entertainment. The cost for the
only $15.00 per person. There were roughly 150 people in
attendance Not exactly a "pot of gold",
but there was a raffle drawing for a nice chuck of change, and
that's "no blarney". There was also a drawing for an
authentic home made Irish quilt. Kudos need to go out
to all the brothers and some of their wives for devoting their
time and efforts to make the event a rousing success. A
special vote of thanks must go to Grand Knight Bob Gibbia for the
work he did, above and beyond the call of duty.
