Sásta Lá Fhéile Pádraig (Happy St Patrick's Day!)

One thing we do very well at Elderberry is celebrate holidays!  For St Patricks' Day this week we had a party with our sister community Potluck Farm.  We turned the common house green with decorations, and there was all manner of green and Irish food.  We learned about the Irish heritage of our members (not a lot!), and enjoyed some Irish music and even a little singing.  And we're very happy to also be celebrating La Fheile Bride, or the coming of spring!!

Cheryl and Karolyn had the common house decked out early in the day

Mike and Cheryl were definitely the best dressed of the partygoers

Gus, Rosemarie and Meg (in the foreground, check out Meg's colcannon - yum!)

We had a "help draw the leprechaun white board - I think he started with only the hat!
Joan adding some leprechaun parts

Checking out all of the food!

There were green salads, 2 shepherds pies, colcannon, a salmon dish with greens, Irish pork stew and much, much more!

The most interesting of the foods was the leprechaun pizza - pesto with corned beef and cabbage!!!
Eating at a very green table

Kelly, Dale and Karen..... and the all-important bottle of Guinness!

Mike was the only one to brave drinking green beer!!

Everyone enjoying watching Kelly as she leads us in Irish song

We all (sort of ) sang Oh Danny Boy!  Thanks Kelly!
