THE HIBERNIAN BANQUET
The close of St. Patrick's day was celebrated by the Hibernians in becoming
style at their hall last evening. A social was held in the forepart of the
evening and later on a bountiful supper was served. Fred R. SHARON was
toastmaster for the occasion and briefly addressed the members on "The Day
We Celebrate". John J RYAN responded to the toast, "Ireland"; Capt. GREALISH
to "Our Irish Soldiers"; A.P. McGUIRK to "The Parliamentary Party"; E.M.
SHARON to "Our Societies"; and P.J. HAGERTY to "Irish Exiles". Remarks were
made also by several others. Fully 150 Hibernians enjoyed this festive
occasion.
