There may not be any green on the ground yet, but there’s green in the air. St. Patrick’s Day is just around the bend.
Next Tuesday, March 17, there are two good options for celebrating the day. One is a lunch for senior citizens. The other is a dinner held by seniors (and lower classmen).
The Southborough Senior Center is hosting their party at 12:30 pm:
Luncheon: An Irish Meal by TJ’s of Ashland featuring Corn Beef and Cabbage with all the fixings. (Baked Stuffed Chicken upon request.)
Suggested Donation: $6 for Friends of Council of the Aging; $10 for non-members
Entertainment: Music by Jug o’ Punch. The band has been entertaining audiences in Massachusetts for 43 years.
Be sure to reserve ahead. Stop by the Senior Center or call 508-229-4453. To help get you in the mood, here’s a taste of what’s in store from Jug o’ Punch:
That evening, there’s another option (besides the obvious Irish pubs.) Assabet Valley Regional Technical School is holding an Irish Dinner as a fundraiser:
For the extremely reasonable price of only $12 per person, patrons will feast on a soup or salad, then Corned Beef and cabbage, potato, carrots, Irish Soda Bread, a dessert, and of course the beverage is included as well. The dinner will be offered from 5 PM until 7 PM, on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th. This dinner is offered by reservation only, which can be made by calling the restaurant at 508-263-9865, or by visiting the school website. . .
Wearing green is encouraged, but optional!
The proceeds from the dinner will be used to help defray the cost of the program’s Cook Around the World experience in Orlando, Florida, in May. Students and staff will visit the Walt Disney World® Resort and Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School for some behind the restaurant scenes tours, a cooking class with Le Cordon Bleu chefs, sessions on how food will be grown in the future, including Hydroponics and Aeroponics, and presentations by some of Disney’s best chefs. There will also be seminars on providing the highest quality customer service to customers from around the world. All in all, the students and staff are looking forward to an incredible learning experience in a magical setting, and are working hard to fundraise to make it happen. Donations are gratefully accepted.
