The Daughters of Erin Children’s Christmas Party was held at the Shamrock Club of Columbus on December 11. Crafts, raffles, and plenty of fun were on the docket as well as a surprise visit from the Easter Bunny and our favorite Shamrock Club icon Brian the Leprechaun. Having not been able to see the children at the annual Egg Hunt this year or at St. Patrick’s Day, the loveable holiday characters took time out of their busy off-season schedules to appear with their buddy Santa Claus to remind everyone they’re still here and how much they have missed everyone.
Thank you to all members of the Daughters of Erin and volunteers that help make this event so special. It has been greatly missed.
