Dear Daughters of Erin Members,

Hope you're having a wonderful summer!

The Irish Quilt Wall Hanging Raffle has been postponed. We'll announce a date for the raffle at the September meeting.

Save the date, Sunday, Sept. 12 for the September membership meeting. We hope to return to St. Christopher in Trinity School. It will be wonderful to see everyone!


Chris McKenzie is proud to share the news that her husband Terry (Arthur Terrence McKenzie) is participating in the Honor Flight Network on Thursday, Aug. 19, in honor of his service in the U.S. Air Force.

As part of the flight, the veterans receive cards, letters, notes, photos, etc. that their supporters have provided. Even if you have not had the pleasure of meeting Terry, we invite you to send a card to include in his “mail call.” There is no need for long sentiments (unless you are compelled to send those). Just a short note is deeply appreciated.

Please send letters with name, Terry McKenzie, Flight Date, Aug. 19, 2021 on the outside of the envelope to Honor Flight Columbus, P.Ox. Box 12036, Columbus, OH 43212.

Thank you in advance for supporting him (and all the troops of yesterday and today).

We are grateful to Cardo's Pizza & Tavern and friends of the Lynch family for partnering with them on their 2021 golf outing.

We are invited to receive the check from Cardo's Pizza and Tavern @ 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 18 at Cardo's 7897 Refugee Road, Pickerington, OH 43147.
