March Weekend Events: Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 03/16-18

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope that you are having a great week and are getting prepared for this weekend’s celebrations. With Saturday being St. Patty’s Day, as I like to call it, I know many are looking for some kind of “Luck O’ The Irish”. Having a lot of Irish in me, one would think that I might be inclined to search for a Shamrock, or find a Rainbow and the infamous Pot of Gold. It would be nice, however, I just don’t think that anyone will ever find that Pot of Gold, or even find the end of the Rainbow. Please let me know if and when it is found, that would be a story worth reading (smile).  

I do believe in Blessings and Prayer, and I definitely want to pass that along. I love to have fun with holidays though and I do hope that you do too, and are able to enjoy an awesome weekend with great happenings taking place around the High Country. Don’t forget to wear your Green!
