It’s November – my favourite month!
And what a weekend we have before us.
I always know in my head that November is the crazy ball month of the Irish calendar, but yet, each year I am caught by surprise at just how many great events the Irish community can manage to fit into just a few weeks.
And it’s my birthday month too – awesome!
Winter Benefit – Sunday at 3 PM
I’m going to list a few of my favourite events in a minute, but first, I hope you have dusted off your dancing shoes and are ready for the Irish Immigration Center’s Winter fundraiser this Sunday.
We will be at Finnigan’s Wake on Third and Spring Garden from 3 o’clock on Sunday. The Bogside Rogues will be playing; there will be dancing; there will be singing; there will be tasty food.
And most importantly, all proceeds will go to fund the work of the Irish Immigration Center. So please, please come out to support us.
The Immigration Center helps over 3,000 people a year with a huge range of issues – from applying for U.S. and Irish citizenship to helping stranded Irish visitors get back home. And it is your support that makes our work possible.
And see you on Sunday!
A few more great events I hope you will attend!
While you’re at it, you should really become a member too!
Saturday, November 5 – the Mayo Association is hosting its 106th Mayo Ball. If you can only attend one ball this season, it has to be Mayo!
Sunday, November 6 - St. Malachy Parish will hold its annual Irish concert with Mick Moloney and friends. Proceeds support St. Malachy School, which has long been funded by the Irish community. Let’s keep that tradition alive.
And the best part is, you can support St. Malachy and then come over to Finnigan’s to support the Immigration Center. A perfect Sunday afternoon – well, for a non-Eagles week.
See you all soon!
