Enjoy the St. Patrick’s Day Irish Brunch hosted by the Bitterroot Celtic Society at Sapphire Lutheran Homes on Sunday, March 17.
Bitterroot Celtic Society Member Sharon Bladen said St. Patrick brought hope and optimism to the Irish people for 30 years.
“Today there are more people of Irish decent in America than there are in Ireland,” she said. “The day of [St, Patrick’s] death, March 17, is celebrated around the world by Irish and non-Irish alike. The Bitterroot Celtic Society invites you to celebrate with some traditional Irish cuisine. Remember the Irish proverb ‘Laughter is brightest where food is best.’”
The menu options include a traditional Irish breakfast, shepherd’s pie and Irish lamb stew. All are served with sweet Moor pudding.
Sapphire Community Engagement Director Dominic Farrenkopf said he is proud to host the St. Patrick’s Day brunch for the seventh year helping the Bitterroot Celtic Games and Gathering raise money for their event in August.
“We have a delicious menu planned and people are sure to have a good time over brunch with family or friends. I will be there dressed as a leprechaun... with gold coins of course,” Farrenkopf said. “At Sapphire we seek to build a faithful and active community partnerships and this is a good way to engage the greater community. We hope people join us for brunch and support this great cultural cause.”
Tickets are sold at the door and cost $12 for adults, $6 for ages 6-12 and are free for ages five and under.
The brunch is sponsored by Schrock Construction Inc.
