Report on the 16 March St Patrick’s Day Dinner

   Members and guests started arriving at 1800.  The atmosphere was relaxed, cheerful, the Consolidated Club was ready for our social hour.  
   By 1900 the club manager had enticed us with the aroma of Corned Beef and Cabbage along with Honey Ham, that it was time to eat.  
   Ed Ard blessed the meal and added special prayers for all those that could not be with us.  44 members and guests were in attendance.
   Gene Moran brought his CD Library of Irish Music, which played, for us for the duration of a very enjoyable dinner.  
   The 50/50 Raffle netted us $43 and was won by Mary Westfall.  She donated $23 of her windfall back to the Club.  Thank you Mary.
   Two CWOA clocks were sold for the low, low price of $20 each be sure and get yours soon. 

   We are slowly getting the 2001 dues in, please if you have not paid yet now is a good time to send them in or better yet bring it to the next
