Lawler Irish Fest 2014 (also lovingly known as Irish Fest II) is in the books…and what a terrific event is was. For the second year in a row, the Good Lord blessed us with wonderful sunshine on Friday and Saturday! Downpours on both the preceding Thursday and again on Sunday, prove once again that God has a special place in his heart for the Irish.
Thanks to all of you who may have: attended, volunteered, participated in, or donated to Irish Fest II. Each and every one of you is an integral cog in the ongoing success of the annual event. Attendees were eager to share how much they enjoyed the parade, the music, stage presentations, the story-telling, the dancing, the food, the large tent, and the over-all congenial atmosphere.
Again this year, folks came from near and far to enjoy a few days appreciating Lawler Past and Lawler Present. Smiles were abundant, as were a few tall-tales about long ago antics in town. Rumor has it that a few of those tales might actually be true!
It may be a cliché to say, “We couldn’t have done it with out you.” But guess what, it’s a fact, “We truly could not have done it without you!”
And while basking in the glory of another successful Fest, we have one more request. Please mark your calendar for the 3rd weekend in June 2015. If you think the first two were a blast…you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!
