Hello all my friends...!!

Did you bring your Shamrocks and your Shillelagh's???

We are going to feast on some corned beef and cabbage..and some green refreshments!

We will be doing the Irish Jig to one of the most famous Irish songs.. "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling"...

When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, 'tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.

And we will see if we can find a Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow......!!!!

ERIN GO BRAGH and May the luck of the Irish be with you today and every day!!!!

A modern day miracle occurs each year as part of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade celebration when the Chicago River turns an incredible shade of Irish green.

For the past 43 years the Chicago River turns green for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade celebration. One would ask how this is different from the rest of the year when the river is always a murky shade of green. The difference is both significant and breathtaking because the color green is identical to the greens of Ireland from where it got its name “The Emerald Isle.”

In 1961 Stephen Bailey was approached by a plumber who was wearing some white coveralls, they knew this only because they could see some of the original color. These coveralls had been mostly stained or dyed a perfect shade of green, an Irish green to better describe it. It was when Stephen Bailey asked how the coveralls got this way, that they discovered that the dye used to detect leaks into the river turned green, not just any color green, but the perfect color green.

A TRADITION IS BORN......

Today this miracle belongs to Mike Butler and his crew, which he claims to always have a little help from a leprechaun who seems to just appear at this time each year.

A miracle appears that day, the river turns a perfect shade of green something that many other cities have tried but have not been successful at doing. We believe that is where the leprechaun comes in.

As the late Stephen Bailey has said, the road from Chicago to Ireland is marked in green. From the Chicago River to the Illinois River, then to the Mississippi, up the Gulf Stream and across the Atlantic you can see the beautiful green enter the Irish Sea, clearly marking the way from Chicago to Ireland.

May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow
And may troubles avoid you
Wherever you go
