It was a celebration of all things Irish earlier this month as the White Rock Irish club celebrated St. Patricks Day with a sold-out dinner and dance.
Festivities took place March 12 at Hazelmere Golf Club and showcased Irish music, dancing and art. White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin and his wife, Jane, were “guests of honour,” according to a club release, which also noted the group has been “rapidly expanding” due to an influx of young Irish families to the community.
The club, formed in 2003, focuses on recognizing Irish culture throughout the Semiahmoo Peninsula with plans to co-host events throughout the year with the Fraser Gaels, an Irish soccer organization.
The White Rock Irish Club has also worked closely with the city in planning this year’s White Rock Irish Festival, a month-long celebration that runs through March 31 and features various arts, culture and dining events.
