The Robson Ranch Music Club is sponsoring their annual St. Patrick’s Day Karaoke and Dance Party on Friday, March 15 at 7:00 p.m. Surely you won’t want to miss out on this fun evening of singing, dancing and laughter with some of your closest friends. Did you know that the St. Patrick’s Day celebration actually started here in America and not Ireland? It was first celebrated in Boston in 1737, as a way for Irish immigrants to show a connection to their homeland. Ireland didn’t start to recognize the day as a holiday until 1903. Then the church decided to lift Lenten restrictions for the celebration. So, get your “Green On”, warm up your vocal cords and dust off your dancing shoes and let’s party!
St. Patrick’s color was actually blue. It was changed to green when he used the clover to help define the Trinity, relating the three leaves to symbolize love, hope and faith. We indeed will be lucky to have those three in our lives. Green also represents the beginning of spring, which is, thankfully, just around the corner. What a great way to finally poke your head out from the winter’s cold, gloomy hum drum and welcome the warm green spring days ahead with a celebration! You don’t need to be Irish to celebrate. You just need to celebrate the spirit that the “Irish” represents. The Irish say, “if you are lucky enough to be Irish you are lucky enough”. Having the chance to get together and celebrate good friends makes us all lucky, so on St. Patrick’s Day, we will all be “Irish”. Come and have a great time singing your favorite version of Oh Danny Boy or another of your favorite Irish tunes. Music will be provided by DJ Bill Cody.
The Wildhorse Grill will be selling their tasty tacos, two for $5. Free popcorn and a cash bar will also be available to help keep your Irish Eyes Smiling.
Tickets are $10 per person and are on sale in the clubhouse every Monday, Wednesday and Friday through March 15, the day of the event. Tickets will also be available at the door.
Hope to see you there, March 15, 7:00 p.m. at the clubhouse.
“May your neighbors respect you, trouble neglect you, angels protect you and Heaven accept you”.
