A community on the island decided to host their Irish celebrations a week early this year, by holding a new kind of party for their town.
St. Anne’s Parish Catholic Women’s League held their first Pre-St. Paddy’s Kitchen Party on Saturday, complete with lots of live music, an Irish stew and of course, the option to BYOB to keep the fun well-oiled.
“We’re trying something different, something new and something fun for our locals,” said Joan Derouin, president of the CWL.
Receiving lots of help from CWL members, as well as volunteers from the community, Derouin was excited for the potential of their first party of this kind, especially when the hall was near full just a half hour past the starting point.
She explained that the group usually has two fundraisers every year, one in March and one in November. When the idea was brought forward to start a new party, it seemed like this would be an excellent opportunity.
