On March 17, the world came together to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day which is a holiday dedicated to St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland. People typically celebrate by wearing green, drinking beer, and singing Irish folk songs. Parties are very popular on this holiday. It’s a time to celebrate friendship, family, and beauty of the Irish countryside.
The essence of this holiday is about celebrating Irish heritage.
Last Thursday, March 15th, a sea of green clothing and decorations livened up the main floor at 1709 Bloor St. W. for the annual St. Patrick’s Lunch. There was an attendance of over 50 people participating in the spirit of the event. Popular tunes belted out by the One-Man-Band kept the crowd entertained.
Attendees were treated to a full course meal of a green salad with pecans & cranberries, beef stew, sides and of course… green Guinness beer!
The event was in partnership between West Toronto Support Services, LA Centre for Active Living and LAC
