I would like to start out by congratulating those members who earned “Life Membership” at our annual Presidents Dance. I would also like to congratulate Rich Christ, the 2013 Presidents Award recipient, for his constant dedication to the club.
Our next big event at the club is the Hartford Feis.This year will be held on Sunday June 2nd. For those that are new to the club it is a full day of Irish step dancing out on our field ,under tents, on dance floors we have to make. This event will usually attract about 600 dancers from as far away as Canada. Volunteer opportunities are available so anyone wishing to help please contact chairperson Liz Saunders.
The Irish Music Festival is rapidly approaching and we are still in need of a lot of volunteers. We don’t ask much out of our members but if we got just a couple of hours out of everyone, we all could enjoy the festival. Please pass the word around to friends and neighbors to come down and enjoy the music. I would like to congratulate Tom Folan, Pat Glynn, and Jim Droney, this year Festival Honorees. They will officially open the festival Friday evening so come on down to enjoy the festivities.
Festival Co-chairs Maureen Kennedy and Ray McKinstry, Jr. are looking for volunteers for the Greater Hartford Irish Music Festival, the Irish American Home’s largest fundraising event!
Come and join your fellow members and help your club by volunteering for the festival.
Can’t volunteer over the weekend? We also need plenty of help before and after the festival with set-up and break down!
Please call Volunteer Chairperson Kathleen Blake (860)633-0587 if you can lend a hand!
