Letter to the editor: Thanks for making St Patrick’s celebration great


I wish to thank everyone who came out on St. Patrick’s Day to congratulate Mr. john McSherry (our Irish Mayor for the day) and wish him well.

My thanks to the Ladies of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, who helped with refreshments, the baked goods and Irish soda bread table and to the ladies who helped with the Luck of the Irish drawing.

The lucky winner of the Luck of the Irish drawing was Terries Flower Shop.

I would also like to thank the Ancient Order of Hibernians past presidents who helped with the parade and flag raising.

A good time was had by all.

Until next year I leave you with this:

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on you windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow the rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Antoinette Cronin
Ladies of the Ancient Order of Hibernians President
