     We are asking our members and friends who can donate home-made Irish Breads, Scones and other baked goods to sell in ‘Annie’s Tea House’ to call Phyllis at 302-354-1356.  
     Everyone who has attended our FEST in the past has had a good time. It is a major Fundraiser for the NCCIS and a great time for all of our members to show support in their Club by attending and/or volunteering to help at the FEST. Volunteers are needed to help in Annie’s Tea House’; in the kitchen; at the admission and chance tables; and throughout the Irish Center. If you can volunteer an hour or more of your time please call Phyllis Pini at 302-354-1356 to schedule the time when you wish to help.
