Join us in-person to celebrate St. David’s Day at 11AM for pre-lunch conversation and drinks from the cash bar, with hors d’oeuvres including cheese platter, fruit & vegetable cruditee. Finally gather with old friends and meet new ones. There will be time to shop at our tables: Welsh mugs, ties, music, cards, gifts and more. Have your photo taken with two of our Board members in Welsh national dress and find your Welsh roots on our map!
Current Covid protocol will be adhered to:
Lunch will be at 12:00 noon, following a video message from the First Minister of Wales. After a presentation on Y DDRAIG COCH (The Red Dragon) , we will be entertained by WILD NOTES, pictured left, a local folk band who have learned some Welsh tunes.
First prize ticket in a drawing wins a bottle of Penderyn Welsh Whisky or if you prefer a $40 gift certificate from UK Gourmet in Bethel, CT or a gift certificate for Welsh Cake goodies from the Copper Kettle Bakery (copperkettlebakery.com) who make the best Welsh Cakes you can buy!
We will end the program with the Welsh National Anthem.
