HAVE YOU NOTICED OUR GROTO LATELY ??

Due to the efforts of our Warden Steve Zulon and Jim Davidson our Groto behind the council has never looked better with a super display of flowers and plantings. Steve and Jim have spent numerous hours planting and arranging the flower beds and also placing an eternal light in front of our Blessed Mother. Steve also takes time out every other day on his way home from work to stop by the council and water and check on the flowers and plants.

Also Thank You to brother Bob Daley for helping to prepare the clam chowder and his wife Chris for preparing the Seafood Bisque and what would a friday night lounge event be without our own Spin Doctor, Craig Donohue wheelin and dealing his magic with the Irish wheel of good fortune.

AFTER SAINT PATRICKS FRIDAY NIGHT BASH

Save that green beer and don't put away that Shamrock green sweater just yet. Never let it be said that Council 347 let Saint Patricks Day go by without a celebration. They say as legend has it Saint Patrick kicked all the snakes out of Ireland on March 17th but what isn't as well known is it took him 11 days to do it. So we decided to celebrate this great event on Friday March 28th in the lounge in honor of the 11 days. There will be prizes and surprises, munchies and Irish music and of course O'Donohue the Irish Spin Doctor doing his thing.
