It was indeed a happy St. Patty's Day! March 17th was so fun, with a Champagne and Beer Reception, a speech by Dermot Ryan, wonderful guests, wild attire, and the spirit of the leprechaun!
Gita Runkle and President Connie Maguire greeted our speaker, Dermot Ryan! His talk was on the shared themes of Irish and American Art and Literature!
 
Pat Johnston received one of President Connie's Spirit of the Leprechaun Awards for all she does throughout the year for Rotary!
Tom Loo also received an award, a service medal for his consistent high performance on behalf of the club! 

 

Thank yous go to...

Matt Williams and Christine Mirasy-Glasco for so graciously greeting at the door!
