On Saturday, May 9, 2020 the Essex Chapter of the Order of the Friendly Sons of the Shillelagh will hold its 52nd Annual Dinner Dance at Mayfair Farms in West Orange, NJ from 6: 00 to 11: 00 PM Our dance has become a warm tradition and one of the top social events on the Irish-American calendar, and this year will be no exception. The evening will include a 90-minute cocktail hour, a sit-down dinner, an open bar, and live entertainment provided by Ryan’s Express, DeNogla-Ardmore Irish Dancers, and the Essex Shillelagh Pipes & Drums.
It is with much pride that we announce Mr. Thomas (T-Mal) Malkinski and Mr. Mark Moran as our 2020 distinguished honorees. Both are loyal members of our Order and community who have tirelessly contributed their time and energy over the years as dedicated members, committee heads, trustees and officers. They are individuals who represent the best of Irish and American values and are well deserved Shillelagh Men of the Year.
Our 2020 Friend of the Friendly Sons of the Shillelagh is Ms. Kay Slattery, a generous and dedicated supporter of our Order, a distinguished member of the community through both public and private activities and an individual with strong Irish roots.
To help remember our Dinner Dance, we will once again publish a commemorative journal. To place a message or advertisement in our Dinner Dance Journal, or to obtain tickets to the dance please contact any member of the committee, order on-line via our website at www.shillelaghclub.com/dance, or return the enclosed advertisement and ticket request forms.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Dance!
