One of our favorite annual traditions at the 115th Anniversary Saint Patrick’s Day Dinner @Aspire!

Final planning Meeting at McBride’s for the 2013 Dinner at Aspire!

Great camaraderie ( and relief for President Dan McKenney) as we wrap up the Final details for this year’s 113th Annual Friendly Sons of St. Patrick ( Providence Chapter, since 1901) dinner @ Aspire ( the food and setting are going to be awesome!)…missed Jim  Crowshaw and Jim Simmons who both have been helpful in planning along the way….but we did get a surprise cameo appearance  from a newly trimmer and red wine drinking Nedley, which was great! Tim and Tom …look forward to seeing  you at the event. Great job once again guys! Slainte!
