By Staff | Mar 11, 2008

The St. Pat’s Banquet is the culmination of the 2008 Emmetsburg St. Patrick’s Celebration. Tickets for the Sunday evening event are available at St. Pat’s Headquarters.

“Although there are many activities during the celebration, the highlight is the banquet,” says Mickey Conlon, Chairman of the St. Patrick’s Association. “The dinner begins at 6 p.m. with entertainment by the ‘New Irish Dancers’ before the dinner.”

Featured speaker is Emmetsburg’s guest, David Stanton, T.D., a member of the Irish Parliament, Fine Gael Party.

“The Association is very pleased to have Mr. Stanton as our Irish Dignitary this year and we sincerely hope that you will give him and his wife, Mary, a big welcome to Emmetsburg.”

The banquet will be held Sunday, March 16, in the cafeteria at Iowa Lakes Community College, prepared and served by Iowa Lakes Food Services. Reservations can be made by stopping at St. Pat’s Headquarters; all reservations must be pre-paid. For information, call 712-852-4326.
