Dear Daughters of Erin Members,

Welcome to March! It's almost Green Season and this year promises to be different!

Proclamation Day is Friday, March 12. Mass is at 8:30 a.m. at Saint Christopher Church, all social distancing and mask guidelines must be followed. The Mass will be live-streamed on the Saint Christopher Facebook page. Byrne's Pub is hosting a breakfast after Mass, but there is no public event for Proclamation Day at City Hall. There is a Fish Fry at the Shamrock Club at 5 p.m.

Saint Patrick's Day Mass is at 9:30 a.m., but there is no seating available due to the size of the church, at this time. If seating opens we will share with members. Mass will be live-streamed on the Saint Patrick's Church Facebook page. We will send updates if there are events at the Shamrock Club or Tara Hall.

The Cultural Committee is wondering if you're interested in Zoom events with Irish speakers. If you are, please send me an email to me at mckoprs@yahoo.com. I've heard from a few of you but we really need more interest to make this possible.

Save the date for the March meeting, Sunday, March 14 at 2 p.m., via Zoom. Watch for details.

Please join us!

THE IRISH PUB, free movie on YouTube

The Irish Pub is a eulogy to the greatest institution in Irish society, the pub or more specifically the traditional Irish publicans who run them. The characters in this exceptionally endearing film all run and own pubs that have been in their families for generations and it is through their warmth, wit and wisdom that we gain an insight into the heart and soul of The Irish Pub. It has subtitles so you actually know what they are saying!

Thank you ladies for shopping at Kroger and choosing to benefit the Daughters of Erin. Last month, we received more that $88. This money is raised from Kroger Cards registered through Kroger Community Rewards.

Signing up or registering your account is easy to do. The best part is that YOU still receive your Kroger rewards (coupons, fuel perks, etc) but behind the scenes, the Daughters of Erin receives a percentage of what you spend at the Kroger Store.
In the search field, type in Daughters of Erin or enter the organization # 81910.
Thank you for your support!

The Daughters of Erin is registered for AmazonSmile, a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices and convenient shopping features as found on Amazon.com.
