Performers of all ages filled the Huntingdon Legion with music, dancing, humour and entertainment on Saturday, March 18. A large crowd of spectators, decked out in their finest green attire, enjoyed a full program of traditional Irish music as well as performances from Irish dancers, including this trio from the Young Academy of Irish Dance. Diane Carson, who co-organizes the event with Kathleen Hackett, says they had a “great turnout … a packed house!” She says they welcomed performers from as far away as Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Montreal, and the program included favourites such as When Irish Eyes Are Smiling and Danny Boy. Profits from the evening will go toward the Betty Riel Foundation and the Ukrainian cause.
