It might be hard to believe, but March is just around the corner and as you probably know, that means it’s time to be putting on the green. That’s green, as in celebrating all things Irish and the good folks of Leona Valley love to get into the spirit of this festive occasion by coming together to eat, drink, and be merry. It has become one of the must do events that happens every March, where neighbors come together to laugh and enjoy each others company. In fact, it is these kind of social events that make living in Leona Valley, or in any small community, so special and it is these kinds of events that bring neighbors together to bond, form friendships, and to truly get to know each other.
This year the Leona Valley Sertoma will be holding its annual Traditional St. Paddy’s Day “Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner” on Friday, March 17th from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. Once again, it will be held at the Leona Valley Community Building, located at 8367 Elizabeth lake Road, in Leona Valley, California. In addition to the always delicious corned beef and cabbage, there will be a great selection of desserts AND a bar featuring Irish Coffee drinks.
The price for all of this is crazy affordable! Donations are $8.00 with Senior Adults only $7.00 and children age 12 (and under) just $4.00.
One of the great things about this event is the money raised goes to support programs of the Leona Valley Sertoma, like the Leona Valley Sertoma Scholarship Program, so it is a win-win for the whole community. Make plans to be there and invite your friends to join you and maybe you’ll all break out in to an Irish jig.
For Information Call you can call Juanita Kirkpatrick at 661-270-0588 or Charlene Moore at 661-816-5177.
And just a reminder, on this special day we are all just a little bit Irish. I’ve heard it said there are two kinds of people in the world, those who are Irish… , and those who wish they were.
Lastly, let me close with an old Irish toast: (raise your glasses!)
“May those who love us, love us
And those who don’t love us
May God turn their hearts
But if he can’t turn their hearts
May he turn their ankles
So we may know them by their limping.
Erin Go Bragh!
