St. Patrick’s Day Party

Join your neighbors for a St. Patrick’s Day Party! The festivities will take place on Saturday, March 12th, at 8009 Jackson Park Blvd. from 4:00–7:00 pm. We will serve a hearty Irish stew and sample three Irish stouts and three Irish whiskeys. Nonalcoholic beverages will also be available.

This adult-oriented event will be held outside by a roaring fire and propane heaters. Dress for the elements, bring a mask if you want to use the restroom, and bring your own chairs. The cost will be $10 per person and will be for LDWNA members only. Any proceeds will be donated to the LDWNA Scholarship Fund.


There will also be a prize for the best St. Paddy’s Day garb!
