American-Irish Club – April 2015

Mary Pilon, Secretary

Our March meeting was held in the Horizon Room on Tuesday, March 3. There were 52 members present plus five guests. After February’s minutes and the Treasurer’s report were read and approved, we discussed the annual Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner which was held March 11 in the Ballroom. As of this writing 97 tickets have been sold. The dinner will be catered by Julie and the Horizon Room staff.

Elections were held and each present officer has consented to serve another season in his or her respective post. The members approved with a 100 percent vote. Our officers for the 2015-2016 season are President Walt Kinney, Vice President Deanna Calvert, Treasurer James Gascoyne and Secretary Mary Pilon.

The bean bag toss is popular and will be featured at the Patio Party. We will swear in the returning club officers.

We already have some suggestions and plans for next fall. Possibly we will have a bocce ball event. Possibly we will attend a musical at Hale Theater or Phoenix Theater. Possibly we will attend the Senior Variety Show at Chandler Center of the Arts next spring. We plan an active and enjoyable 2015-2016 season.

President Walt Kinney adjourned the meeting at 7:00 p.m. after which we all enjoyed sub sandwiches, munchies and beverages of our choice.
