St Patrick's Day 2009


Please view our special St Patrick's Day Newsletter (Sign-in to see Archives here) via Email. This newsletter is a surprise to all of us as we just received a large "unmarked" envelope of materials. The contributed content celebrates St Patrick's Day, as well as our newsletter surviving 12 months. We added recipes to our private Family Cookbook web site; please sign-in to access. We've included one of our family's traditional supper and lunch menus (Sign-in here).

Our newsletter is packed! We thank the relatives who graciously agreed we will reserve some of their humorous content for our next newsletter. We hope to hear from the rest of this big clan in the near future. Happy St Patrick's Day!


Please enjoy these recipes now on our public blog:

News Needs Your News Feb 28, 2009

To ensure our newsletter is meaningful, we want to stay focused on the extended family.  To that end, we hope each of you will contribute stories (and pictures) about your lives, whether small or big things. Everyday stuff and humorous stories are great.

While we may use a few "filler" stories to round out our family newsletter, we hope to keep the majority of  content focused on you-- our family. If you are regularly contributing stories, thank you. The entire family appreciates your efforts-- please keep the stories coming.
