    Shamrock Festival March 2015
    Shamrock Festival, normally scheduled for the first week before or after St. Patrick's Day, is a way for the townspeople to be Irish for a day and join in on some entertaining friendly banter. This past March we introduced "Jest Fest" as a way of providing community involvement with business participation. A Sunday Brunch filled with laughs and great food, with a little Irish entertainment thrown in.
