If you plan to attend, please let a Board Member know or respond to this email, so we can have a table big enough! Thank you.

If you have an idea for an activity or event, please share it with us -- we want each of you to be an active part of the Daughters of Erin.

We are thankful for each and every member and their families. I am so proud of the Daughters of Erin and the work we do in the community and with all Irish organizations.

Thank you,
Sharon
