Janice and Shelly fixed a delicious St Patrick’s Day lunch. This day commemorates St Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. Why wear green? It is said St Patrick used the shamrock  to teach the trinity. Also, leprechauns can’t see green so you won’t get pinched if you wear green? Regardless of the traditions, celebrating Christianity is always a good day. Happy St Patrick’s Day  Josalyn likes helping with Meals on Wheels. Janice, Charlie, and Kay have to keep each other straight on where to deliver. Stay warm!! Prayers for Ukraine
