Moving Right Along… American/Irish Club

Mary Pilon, Publicity

The Irish Club celebrated the new year’s first meeting on Jan. 2 at 5 p.m. in the ballroom. The meeting was short and sweet. The following items were discussed:

Laughlin bus trip—Bus arrives at SunBird at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 4. It leaves SunBird at exactly 7:30 a.m. (That’s never a problem, because the members are nearly all assembled by 7 a.m., anxiously awaiting departure for Laughlin.) We will return on Thursday, Feb. 6. Luggage tags and parking notes were passed out at the meeting. Our annual bus trip is always much fun. We will stay at the Flamingo and enjoy golf and/or a trip to Oatman to visit the resident donkeys. Good luck to all Irish wagerers.

The annual Golf Cart Parade will be held on Tuesday, March 17 (St. Pat’s Day) with our business meeting/party held on the patio afterwards. No details are available yet as to times, etc.

Treasurer’s Report was given, followed by Membership’s Report. We had 144 paid members present at this meeting, including our four new members who were introduced, then welcomed by the members.

The 50/50, (which is now shared with three members and the treasury) was won by John Roberts, Carl Fredricks, and Nancy DeBour. The Dollar Game was won by Diane Crum.

The meeting was adjourned at 5:15 p.m., and everyone enjoyed sliders and chips afterwards.

Joke for the month:

Paddy and Seamus were walking home from the pub, and Paddy said, “What a beautiful night. Look at the moon.” Seamus replied, “You’re wrong. That’s not the moon. That’s the sun.” The men argued for a while, and then came upon a real drunk walking down the street.

“Sir, can you settle an argument? Tell us what that thing is up in the sky that’s shining. Is it the moon or the sun?” The drunk looked at the sky and then said, “Sorry, I don’t live around here.”
