Our Residents’ Irish eyes were certainly smiling on March 17 as we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day! Complete with live Irish music, step dancing, and scones, you’d swear we were in a Dublin pub – not our very own Holy Family Residence.
Upon entering our auditorium adorned with shamrocks, every Resident was welcomed with a fresh green carnation corsage or boutonniere courtesy of the Shamrock Heart Foundation as well as live music courtesy of Kevin Campion. Kevin, who is the husband of Kathy Campion, Holy Family’s human resources director, strummed a range of mellow melodies and traditional Irish favorites while everyone enjoyed shamrock shaped sugar cookies, scones, and lemonade.
As the festivities continued, many of the Residents enjoyed an impromptu Irish step dancing performance by Heather, one of our volunteers from Marywood University, as well as participating in a sing-a-long to the Irish anthem: “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling.”
As you can tell, March 17 certainly was a great day for the Irish AND Holy Family Residence!
