It’s the Saint Patrick’s Day Dinner, from March 17, 2004. Watch the video below and enjoy a whirlwind tour from set-up to wrap as the Leona Valley Sertoma hosts this annual event. I must warn you though, be prepared to take a trip down memory lane where you will see old friends and neighbors, some who have maybe moved away and some who, sadly, are no longer with us. When that happens, we hope it sparks happy memories and brings a smile to your face.
It’s A Saint Patrick’s Day Dinner
It will be a quick two and a half minutes, so don’t blink. It begins with the members setting up tables and in the kitchen prepping the food that is the center piece of the event. Next, enjoy a full minute of the all the activity of the event itself, with members collecting tickets from guests and you can’t help but notice the smiles and laughter, the camaraderie, and the enjoyment of the people, and the members, as they share fellowship with their friends and neighbors. Finally, with the event over, the members take down the tables, sweep up, and return the community building to a state of readiness for the event.
Did you notice the members laughing and smiling, working together to make this popular, annual event a success?
That is one of the true benefits of being a part of this incredible group of people. It’s hard to think of it as being work when you see them laughing and having such a good time. Through events like the Saint Patrick’s Day Dinner, they raise funds that go back into the community as scholarships, to host the Senior Dinners, and other projects that support the community. This is what Leona Valley Sertoma is all about, “Making A Difference” in service to their communities.
