2017 Dinner Dance

On Saturday May 6th, 2017, The Order of the Friendly Sons of the Shillelagh, Essex Chapter, will hold its 49th Annual Dinner Dance at Mayfair Farms in West Orange. Our dance has developed into a warm tradition and one of the top social events on the Irish-American calendar; this year will be no exception. The evening will include a cocktail hour, a sit-down dinner, an open bar, and the best in live entertainment, provided by the McLean Avenue Band.

Our distinguished honorees for the 49h Annual Dinner Dance are individuals who represent the best of Irish and American values, Mr. Robert Lamb and Mr. James Johnston. Both are not only former Shillelagh presidents, but also loyal members of our Order and community who have tirelessly contributed their time and energy over the years. They are well-deserved Shillelagh Men of the Year.

This year’s Friend of the Friendly Sons of the Shillelagh is Mr Richard Morris a generous and dedicated supporter of our Order, and distinguished member of the community. We are delighted he has accepted this recognition.

To help celebrate and remember our Dinner Dance we will once again publish a commemorative Dance Journal. To post an ad in our souvenir journal, or for ticket information, please contact any member of the Dance Committee or simply return the enclosed ticket form and/or advertisement form.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the Dance!

Thank you.

Dance Chairman
