The Knights of Columbus of Washington Township, Mother Seton Council #5427, is hosting its annual St. Patrick’s Day Dinner Dance on Saturday, March 16, from 7 to 11 p.m. at its hall located at 79 Pascack Road. Dinner is the traditional corned beef and cabbage with all the trimmings, including dessert and coffee, and there is an open bar for the entire evening.
The popular Patsy McLaughlin Irish Dancers are on the program and will perform after dinner. They are wonderful young Irish-American dancers who aspire to compete in Ireland every summer. Not only are we entertained by this fine talent, we support their dancing careers. Dan Boyce, a fine young bagpiper who has been entertaining us in recent years, is back again. Sound Illusions is providing music with a distinctive Irish flavor mixed with a lively variety of other dance tunes. Some sing-a-long tunes to mark the occasion are also on the agenda.
Paid-in-advance reservations are required as seating is limited and the affair always sells out. The last day to purchase tickets is March 9. The cost per person is $40.00. Co-Chairmen Jim Dugan and Paul Kearney encourage you to organize a table of 8, 10, or 12 and get your tickets before the deadline. For more information call Jim at 201-666-3425 or Paul at 201-263-9229.
