The Shamrock Dance

 Saturday, March 7th, 2015

7:00 PM

Irish eyes will be smiling at RIWA'S Shamrock Dance
on March 7th at 7:00 p.m., so immerse
yourself in the Irish offerings at
RIWA, Letter Carrier's Hall, 174 Mayfield Street, Cranston, RI.

Music, dancing and food are always featured where everyone is welcomed.
Let's all celebrate, and wear a bit of green and sport a shamrock
which - according to some - makes us speedy and strong.  

Opening our season, RIWA will cook up some corn beef and cabbage
to celebrate, and if you want a sip of Irish whiskey or a gulp of Irish Ale,
then pack it up and bring it with you since RIWA dances are always a BYOB events.

This is the first of six dances scheduled for 2015, so why not
become a member for the best deal in town?
