Columbus Irish: Barktoberfest & Vintage Cars
By: Molly Truex
Starting with their annual Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day celebration, chaired by Ann and Rick Ralston, September was a packed month at the Shamrock Club of Columbus. There was plenty of craic to be had with Mossy and Molly Moran, The Shamrock Club Pipes and Drums, and the dancers from Richens/Timms Academy for entertainment.
The next weekend brought the annual Classic Car and Bike Show, which had a wonderful turn out with ninety-five registered vehicles. The weather was beautiful, and Shorty Allen & the Skirt Chasers entertained the crowd.
We ended the month with Barktoberfest, organized by Stacie Stearns and Karen Finn. This is a new event for the club, in its second year, complete with a blessing of the animals by club chaplain Msgr. Cody, costume contest and pet parade.
We extend a huge thank you to all that participated or organized each event!
