We celebrated St Patrick's day early by having our monthly dinner with an Irish theme. The Dinner Committee and our resident Irishman put together a fun evening. We were asked to dress in green, The chef cooked some traditional Irish meals and we had Irish dancers entertain us, after which they encouraged some residents to join in the fun and learn to do an Irish folk dance.
We were lucky to have this evening just before we have all been asked to think about Social Distancing. So all our clubs and activity groups have now been cancelled so we don't know how long it will be before we have another dinner.
Even Colonel Sanders came.

I'm one of the village photographers and I took a shot of every table but forgot my own table.
Girls from The Trish Williams School of Irish dancing entertained us. We raised over $500 to give them towards the expense of going to the World Championships.
Then it was the residents turn to entertain and have fun learning an Irish dance.

Our village mascot dressed as a lepracorn. When our daughters saw this photo of us we got into trouble for not Social Distancing. They are both very worried about us and the virus, because we are in the vulnerable age bracket and Bill has heart issues as well as me having bronchitis often. They have laid down the law and told us to stay home. So we have been grounded by our children. Talk about role reversal!
