St. Patrick's Day Party Thank Yous

Posted by Patrick Slater on March 18, 2014, 9:13 am

Congratulations and many thanks to all who helped make the St. Patrick's Day Party at Lora Loka's a big success and a grand evening indeed.

Firstly, many thanks to the musicians who entered into the spirit of the occasion and got us all clapping, tapping, stomping, hollering, and singing and dancing. Thank you Will and Ann Schmid, Kevin Mitchell, Susan Biggs, and Triskele (Michael Price and Myranda O'Byrne).

A big thank you as well to all the singers, storytellers, reciters of poetry, and the group of ladies who danced so spontaneously and joyfully, ably led by Myranda O'Byrne and Maedb Persram. Entertainers included Peter Earley, Rose Persram, Joy Twist (and yours truly, Paddy Slater).

Thank you too to Lora Loka and Gerry for hosting the evening in style along with their kitchen crew, George and Lily from Edmonton, and Vanessa, Olga, and Citlali.

Finally, a very big thank you to the Organizing Committee who pulled the whole evening together on their holidays - Maedb and Rose Persram, Peter Earley (and thanks to Lynda Earley too for pitching in enthusistically), and yours truly, Paddy Slater (helped and supported very well by Joy Twist).

And, of course, a big thank you to all who came out on a Monday evening and supported the event so warmly and enthusiastically.
