Happy St. Patrick's Day

May your day be touched with a bit of Irish Luck!

Little ones are welcome to join us this day

To test your luck as you build and you play. 

May your treasures be many of chocolate or gold.

May your traps catch leprechauns that you might actually hold.


Meet our friend Darby O'Gill.  He is playing the fiddle for King Brian and the leprechauns.  Legend has is that if you can't help but dance, even moving just a wee bit, may mean that you have a little leprechaun magic in you!
