St. Patrick’s Day at the community center

The Burney Community Center had a wonderful corned beef and cabbage senior lunch on St. Patrick’s Day. Linda and I arrived just after noon and there was only one spot left in the parking lot. Inside, the line was still moving and the tables were almost all full.

St. Patrick’s Day decorations livened up the hall. People were wearing green hats and shamrocks apparel to suit the occasion. There was a table of baked goods for sale. Ron was playing music on the piano.

In past years, when I played at the Mayfly Pub in Fall River I used to play some Irish tunes such “When Irish Eyes are Smiling,” or the “Black Velvet Band.”

After shooting a few pictures and greeting Bill Campbell who was busy making sure everyone had everything they needed, I got into line and was served a delicious meal featuring corned beef, cabbage, and potato.

The meal was delicious and we had a lively conversation about the 2016 Presidential Election. My position is that I will not vote for Donald Trump and I will not vote for or support any candidate for any office who supports Donald Trump.

Altogether, it was a jolly good time. I am very grateful for all the programs and activities that they host. Bill Campbell does a great job. If you have an idea for an activity, he is very open to anything that will benefit the community.

Linda and I enjoy going for the senior lunches. They are held at noon Monday through Friday. The meal, which costs $3 for seniors, is always nutritious and well balanced. and generally quite tasty.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all.
