     The wearin’-o’-the green was in full display at the Dunnville Legion on Saturday night for our Annual St. Patrick’s Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner.  It was a full house as usual and the Ladies’ Auxiliary did a superb job preparing the old Irish standby with many thanks going out to Nancy Voakes for her tried and true ‘corning’ recipe.  The beef just melted in our mouths.  Cathy Powers provided the background music to add to the ambiance with fun favourites such as The Irish Rovers mixed with the more cultured tones of The Irish Tenors; all adding to the success of the evening.  Thanks to all who participated and supported the event and we can look forward to a bigger and better feast next year.

     I have been asked to remind everyone that the 150 Club is up and running again and if you haven’t bought your tickets yet, do so by March 29th deadline.  The first draw will be held on April 5th.  You don’t want to miss out.

     Our Spring Turkey Raffle is on this week, Friday March 22nd.  Try to make it out and enjoy the fun.   Saturday, March 23rd, come out to our Spring Fling and dance to 50’s – 60’s music by Dave Burden.  It will be a good way to work off some of the calories consumed with all the Irish Pub fare over the last couple of weeks.

     We have started the shopping for the Good Friday Perch Dinner on Friday, March 29th and the boats are out catching the fish as we speak.  This will be our earliest Perch Dinner, seasonally that is, so pray for some spring weather for the poor souls that will be out back operating the fryers.  Serving starts at 5:00 pm, it is still just $15.00/pp and there will be take-out as usual.

     We are proud to announce that we now have two, BIG screen TV sets generously donated by one of our members, so come in and sit yourself down, hook up to our WiFi while watching your favourite show and enjoy multi-tasking in the comfort of your newly decorated legion.  The branch is truly blessed by the generosity of our members and associates.  It comes in many forms; furnishings, electronics, food supplies, building materials, labour and hundreds of hours of volunteer time, all of which are greatly appreciated.
