Pat the Leprechaun Needs a Home!

There once was a leprechaun named Pat
His gold he keeps under his hat.
He often will grouse
“If I just had a house
My gold I’d be keeping in that!” 

 On Parade Day, March 12, the club will be holding a contest to see who can build Pat the Leprechaun the best house. This is a great family project. Leprechauns love houses made out of bits and pieces from the garden or from perfectly good stuff humans throw away. The base of each house should not be larger than 12 inches by 12 inches. Other than that, the possibilities are endless! Bring your completed house to the club’s upstairs hall on Parade Day. Judging will begin at 4:00 pm. Prizes will be awarded.
