Blarney-Stone Tales

Q: So just where does a leprechaun hide his gold?
A: Not necessarily under the rainbow. Those sneaky little leprechauns have hidden our gold and we’re on a hunt to find it!

It's a race to find the gold – and find it we do – in our shamrock haystack!

Speaking of races, there's a fabulous Irish derby going on this week. It's a fundraising event for Frankie Lemmon called Derby Days. We were visited today by NCSU's Sigma Kappa sorority sisters Chandler Miller and Madison Moss. Along with girls from other sororities, they were participating in Derby Days, Sigma Chi fraternity's annual fundraising event for charitable causes. Proceeds from this year's event, through sorority competitions, the sale of raffle tickets, alumni happy hours, dance competitions, etc. go directly to the Frankie Lemmon school. A new school, with more children served and more grade levels, is getting closer and closer!

Meanwhile, my friends are learning more each day.
This is a story of one of them.

Another fabulous event: Dancing with Bubbles.
Our thanks to Lisa Wald for these absolutely wonderful photos.

May the road rise to meet you,
may the wind be ever at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of his hand.

— an Irish blessing
