 We’re having a Hooley!* *WHAT IS  A HOOLEY?Hooley is a fun word for a very lively, informal Irish house party.  It's a tradition that dates back in Ireland and Irish America to the days before recorded entertainment, before radio and TV.  It still lingers among people who understand how much fun it can be for friends and family to entertain each other. The party centers around the idea of the "party piece".  A lot of people come to the party prepared with at least one party piece of entertainment - a song or a tune on an instrument, a stepdance, a poem, a recitation, or a joke or story to tell - for the enjoyment of everyone at the party. Anyone can take a turn, or join in with someone else, or just listen.  It's a great way to get to know your friends and neighbors. A hooley might break out spontaneously anytime friends are gathered at a neighbor's house, usually in the kitchen, where everyone can share the food and drink brought along by the guests. To celebrate the Presentation of Sashes to the Grand Marshal and Aides of the 25th Annual : For information, contact: Bring your own sharing dish  Bring your favorite beverage  Bring a “party piece” to share, or just come and listen! Suggested Donation: $20 to Glen Cove St. Patrick’s Day Parade Grand Marshal DANIEL LANEAides to the Grand Marshal:      Pamela and Bob Panzenbeck,      Lisa Forgione,Joe McDonald
