May the road rise up to meet you this Saint Patrick’s Day! The Greater Vernon Museum and Archives is pleased to announce that they are hosting an Irish luncheon to celebrate this festive occasion. Chase away the late winter chill with poor man’s stew, baps, mini cheese and leek quiches, warm drinks, and a variety of Irish-inspired goodies. This event is sure to be the perfect chance to eat, drink, and be merry. The charming Doug Edgar will serve as emcee for the afternoon, while the dynamic duo Molly “Malone” Boyd and Sally “O’Malley” Evans will entertain with an array of Irish ditties. Guests will have the opportunity to socialize with fellow community members, win some excellent door prizes, and even gain the gift of eloquence from the museum’s very own Blarney Stone. The Saint Patrick’s Day luncheon is set for Sunday, March 17th, from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm. Tickets are $30 per person, available at the museum, or can be purchased by credit card over the phone. Please note that all tickets must be payed for and collected by March 13th so that seating arrangements can be finalized.
