Saugus celebrated St. Patrick’s Day at the Senior Center
This St. Patrick’s Day, there were no leprechaun sightings in Saugus. However, sure enough, there were caffeine jolting scenes of a humble St. Patrick waving to passersby at 466 Central St., the Saugus Senior Center. St. Patrick, with a crooked cane, looked as if he walked a thousand miles to greet us all.
Compassionate St. Patrick brought out a beautiful warm smile in Jeanne Martel.
Ken Strum, a member of the Council on Aging, playing the part as St. Patrick, spread good cheer and greetings at the lively corned beef & cabbage luncheon last Friday (March 17) as St. Patrick’s Day was celebrated. D.J. Alan LaBella was spinning the tunes and rallying with guests in dance, fun and laughter. The St. Patrick’s Day Queen, Midge Dawicki, was belle of the ball, dancing and enjoying life among friends,
The old Irish Quote to All: “May love and laughter light your days and warm your heart and home. May good and faithful friends be yours, wherever you may roam. May peace and plenty bless your world with joy that long endures. May all life’s seasons bring the best to you and yours!” —forefather’s pen unknown.
