Glen Rose residents celebrated St. Patrick’s Day on Friday here at the Citizens’ center. Everyone enjoyed Grant Groblebe’s entertainment. The winner of the “Most Green” contest was Stephanie Adin, and we thank all the men and ladies who turned out in green for the party.

We held our first dance of the season on Saturday night, and many gathered to dance to the music of Michael Cote and his band. The music was sensational! Come join us at our next dance on Saturday, April 21 where you can dance to Pete & Patty’s entertainment. The cover charge is $5 per person.

Please bring your favorite dish to share with others that night.
