The Winneshiek County Democrats will meet to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Sunday, March 16, from 4-6 p.m. at the home of Doug and Sue Burks, 712 Valley View Drive, Decorah.

“It’s easy being green…or being a Democrat on St. Patrick’s Day. The Winneshiek County Democrats have established a tradition of gathering to snack on green goodies and sip green beverages near this holiday,” said Rebecca Olafsen of the Winneshiek County Democrats.

Elected Democratic officials and Democratic candidates for local offices, the Iowa First Congressional District, and the Iowa Governor's office have been invited to attend.

“Ginger Meyette will entertain the jolly green group with Irish songs. In addition to the green menu, forms of green tender will be accepted to further the goals of the local Democratic organization,” said Olafsen.
