Events / Community Corner

St. Patrick’s Day Party is Saturday, March 9. We
are keeping the tradition alive by cooking more than
one hundred pounds of corned beef. There are some
very extraordinary people who spend days preparing this
to serve a complete corned beef dinner for the Community.
This tradition has been going on for generations. Mark
your calendars now so you don’t miss this fabulous event.
