Several celebrations to salute "The Irish" are off to a great start this week, including tonight's Shillelagh Shindig at the Carpenters’ Union Hall in Butte that got underway at 5:30 pm. "The Shindig" is an annual event that always gets participants in the spirit of tradition leading up to St. Patrick's Day!! With food, drinks, and music galore, this crew knows how to throw a party! (continued...)

There's also time to get involved in tomorrow's (March 11th) Anaconda Ancient Order of Hibernians St. Patrick's Day Race. Well, unless you had a little "too much" fun at the Shilelagh Shindig! If interested, register for the race at runsignup.com/Race/MT/Anaconda/AOHStPatsRace or put on some dark sunglasses, take an alka seltzer, and watch from a distance. Race time isn't until 11 am, so you got this! (Ceilidh below!)

Another event to check out if you're feeling mighty green is the Ceilidh in Anaconda this Sunday (March 12th) at the Anaconda AOH Hall (321-323 E Commercial) beginning at 3 pm. Ceilidh is Gaelic for the "celebration of Irish music and friendly gatherings". This event is sponsored by the AOH and the Ladies' Ancient Order of Hibernians.

As time permits, we will continue to keep you posted on yet more events planned leading up to St. Patrick's Day and more! Thank you!
