St. Patricks Day "Pot Luck Dinner" at the HDC. March 17th, 2018 at 4:00pm.

Five years ago or so, we started a what has become an annual event at the museum, our St Paddy's Day Pot Luck Dinner for all our volunteers and members. This year it falls on St. Patrick's Day on Saturday March 17th and also coincides with the Annual Old Neighborhood St. Patrick.s Day Parade through the Valley and Old first Ward. So come on down to the parade and afterwards, stop by the Heritage DiscoveRY Center at 4pm. Bring a dish or desert to pass and join your fellow members and volunteers for some great food, friendship and good conversation. Its always been a great time. If you have any questions, please call Leslie Kocsis at 716-901-0012 or email her at to let her know you are coming and also if you need a suggestion as to what to bring. Our pot luck dinner is open to all members and volunteers of the society. So mark your calendar and we'll see you on St Paddy's Day!!!
