August Meeting & Dancing At Lughnasadh Pot Luck Dinner & Ceili Dance!

IAS Teen Princess 2005 Maggie Wilcox and some of her Irish dance buddies will be teaching a FREE Irish Ceili Dance Class for us, part 1 before the pot luck and part 2 after the brief business meeting! Please be there in comfortable shoes and clothes ready to have a good time starting at 6:15 pm if you have any interest in Irish social dancing! This is for all ages from the wee ones to the young-at-heart. NO PARTNER OR PRIOR EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!!! Bring friends to join in the fun!

PLEASE NOTE: we will not start going through the buffet line until 7:00 pm in order to get everything set up properly. If your dinnertime is earlier, then please eat a snack in the afternoon that will tide you over until 7 pm. Please bring something yummy to share. We will conduct a very brief business meeting at 7:30 pm, which will be run by Senior VP Joe Brady since Lynnette & Edward will be in the Kingdom of Kerry at this time.
