What an amazing event! The friendship, love, generosity, laughter, and smiles demonstrated and experienced at The Halfway to St. Patrick's Day and Fall Hooley are beyond words. Some pictures have been posted on Facebook but there are so many more to follow!

Thank you thank you thank you John Joe Lyons, owner of The Harp Inn, for always having an open door, a hearty handshake, and plenty of spirits for us to have meetings and special events.
This event was possible and successful, because of the hard work of my amazing group of board members:
Jeff Swift - VP, Craig Brown - Sgt-at-Arms, Ward Smith - Treasurer, Patricia Lollis - Secretary, Randy Adams - Chaplain, Augie Rocha - Quartermaster, Holly O'Donnell - Assoc. Rep. I cannot thank each of you enough...
Be safe my brothers and sisters in blue, be safe all the brave military who are protecting our country.
