St Patrick’s Day at the Legion




St Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador on the nearest Monday to March 17 each year. It remembers St Patrick, a missionary who converted many of Ireland’s inhabitants to Christianity in the 5th century. His feast day also celebrates Irish culture.

St Patrick’s Day marks the feast day and anniversary of the death of a Christian missionary known as Patrick. He was born in the year 387, probably somewhere near the present day border between Scotland and England. At the age of 16, he was captured and taken to Ireland as a slave. During this period, he became very religious and after six years he fled back to his family.

St Patrick’s Day celebrations were brought to Canada by Irish immigrants. The day is a bank holiday in Northern Ireland and a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland. In the rest of the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia and New Zealand, it is celebrated, but is not an official holiday.
People who have an Irish background or enjoy Irish culture may hold Irish themed parties and serve traditional dishes, such as Colcannon or Irish stew. Colcannon is a dish of mashed potatoes mixed with kale or cabbage and Irish stew is traditionally made with lamb and root vegetables.


The most widely-seen St Patrick’s Day symbols are the colors green, and sometimes orange, and the shamrock. The shamrock is a symbol of Ireland and a registered trademark of the Republic of Ireland. It is the leaf of the clover plant, which grows on the ground, often among grass and an Irish Catholic symbol of the Holy Trinity. It is sometimes confused with the four-leaf clover, which is a variety of the three-leaf clover and is thought to bring good luck.

Organizing Committee

The Terry Fox Foundation is responsible for supporting close to $20 million in discovery based research each year in Canada – all monies raised outside Canada must be distributed to (a) an institute approved by the Foundation and its advisors or (b) remitted to Canada. The Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI) is a recipient of TFF funding for translational research. TFRI is an exciting new initiative whose goal is to translate rapidly today’s best science into better cancer treatment and diagnosis for all Canadians. The Institute will bring scientists and clinicians together across the country into a functionally integrated, geographically dispersed Institute with nodes in several provinces.

The Foundation recognizes the duality of its mandate. Not only does it raise money for research, but it also continues to share the story of Terry Fox. The Terry Fox Foundation strives to maintain the heroic effort and integrity that Terry embodied.

It is a grassroots organization that does not allow the Terry Fox name or likeness to be commercialized or conjoined with other worthy causes.

To date, over $650 million has been raised worldwide for cancer research in Terry’s name.

Fashions with Flare - Community Justice Fashion Show 2015 poster
The summer-like weather is finally upon us after a long-delayed spring, and what better way to celebrate than with a summer fashion show.

Fashions with Flare is a fundraising event scheduled for Monday June 15th to support ongoing operation costs for the Lanark County Community Justice Program.

The event will be held at the Perth Civitan Club with doors opening at 6:00 p.m. for a selection of treats and snacks as well as the opportunity to bid on wonderful items in the silent auction. The fashion show will start promptly at 7:00 p.m., featuring clothes from Fall River Fashions, Lavender and Lace, Giant Tiger, Fashion Envy and Jewels. Our volunteers are busily at work planning this 3rd annual event, which will bring a few surprises.
We are pleased to welcome Hugh Colton as our emcee for Fashions with Flare and the first fifty ladies through the door will receive a complimentary flower. In addition to the silent auction, there will be door prizes and a raffle, as well as the chance to take home one of our unique table centrepieces. There will be a cash bar as well as tea and coffee available throughout the evening.

Lanark County Community Justice Program (LCCJP) was formed in 1998 and provides service throughout Lanark County and the Town of Smiths Falls. LCCJP receives court diversion referrals from the police services and the Crown Attorney’s office for both youth and adults on a pre-charge or post-charge basis. Our trained volunteer facilitators bring together everyone involved in an incident in a community forum with the goal of healing the harm that has been done in our communty. Accused persons gain an understanding of the harm they created. Complainants come to understand the circumstances that led to the crime being committed. Both the accused and the complainants have a voice in creating an agreement to bring a resolution to the incident.
Community support is a vital part of our onging operations and we recognize the Perth Civitan, the participating clothing stores as well as the numerous businesses who are donating silent auction and door prize items for this fashion show. LCCJP is also proud to be a United Way Lanark County partner and appreciates the financial support we receive from many service clubs and community groups. For more information about the Lanark County Community Justice Program, please visit our website at or contact our Executive Director, Beth Peterkin, at 613-264-1558 or
