What a great time we all had at the Christmas Party at Apollonia’s in Richardson. Romer Perez laid out a fabulous spread with great Irish comfort food even though we were in his Italian restaurant. There were about 60 of us gathered around tables just having a great time talking. We even had some impromptu entertainment by a member’s brother at the end!
One of the purposes of the Christmas party is to announce the next year Irish Person of the Year. This honor was given to LARRY BALAGNA, husband to our 2017 Irish Person of the Year. Larry is always there to help in any way possible whether it’s big or small. We saw him (before he even knew) helping several members through the buffet line or in some cases just getting their food for them. We were so pleased that he was chosen to be our 2023 Irish Person of the Year.
