MONTHLY NEWS BULLETIN
Our St Patrick's Celebration at the Hilton hotel in Glendale on the 16th March was an outstanding success according to the feedback we received from the attendees. Entertainment by the Dave Miron Band and the Cleary School of Irish Dance was excellent. The Silent Auction was fun with friends bidding against one another.
The Welsh family were there in full force –forty of them including Brenda, Sue, Tara, Sean & Jacqueline, Lynne, Kevin, Jennifer, Joseph, Kathleen, Christina, Casey, Anastsia, Harmony, Cheylene & Ned, plus friends.
It was great to see Tommy Kiernan recovering from his illness, with his family from all over enjoying the evening. The drawing for the trip to Ireland was won by Kathleen Kiernan.
We would like to thank each and every one of you who supported this annual fundraiser, by your attendance, by donating to the Silent Auction or raffle etc.
Lots of photographs have been sent to you. You can see all the photos in our Gallery
Our thanks also go to our committees who worked so hard for weeks before the event.
