The Kumbia Hall supper room became a sea of green for the annual St Patrick’s Day celebrations on Sunday.
St Paddy’s day was actually Friday, but like last year the organisers – the Kumbia Catholic Ladies – decided to shift the event to the weekend so more people could attend.
And it paid off, with about 60 people turning up for the fun.
This year, the Catholic Ladies decided to hold the event inside the Kumbia Hall instead of in the grounds of the Catholic Church. This turned out to be an inspiration – did St Patrick intervene? – as the rain bucketed down outside.
Guests enjoyed afternoon tea as well as lucky prizes, a silent auction and a string of raffles.
The popular “Green Elephant Stall” was back with a range of pot plants available for sale.
There’s a strange thing about St Patrick’s Day celebrations … it turns out that everyone, no matter their cultural background, is a little bit Irish.
And everyone is equally capable of having a good time!
