Dear Daughters of Erin Members,

Thank you to all who attended our October meeting. Hopefully, more of you will join us tomorrow for our November meeting! Remember, our meeting starts at 1 pm in person at St. Christopher's in Trinity School.

We will be presenting our budget at the meeting and discussing our upcoming events. The Children's Christmas Party is 11 am, Saturday, Dec. 11 and our adult Christmas party is Sunday, Dec. 12. We will be announcing our 2022 Irish Woman of the Year at our party so please send your nomination letters to me by Dec. 7 mckoprs@yahoo.com.

We need volunteers to chair our Irish Breakfast in March and our Irish Tea Room at the Dublin Irish Festival in August. (Debbie Lynch's son is getting married the weekend of the Tea Room so she won't be available to chair this year). Both events are major fundraisers for us, please consider helping us fill these vacancies.

Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

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.
