St. Patrick's Day dance features impersonators, assists the needy

A St. Patrick's Day dance -- featuring impersonators of country music stars Garth Brooks, Neil Diamond and Toby Keith -- will help raise money for needy veterans and other Taylor residents.

The party is scheduled for 7 to 11 p.m. March 17 at the Veterans of Foreign Wars hall at 11590 Pine Street, just south of Goddard Road. Doors open at 6 p.m.

The party is sponsored by VFW Post 4422 and the Ladies Auxiliary. Tickets are $15 each or two tickets for $25. Partiers receive snacks, beer and set-ups (BYOB). Irish stew will be available for $3 per bowl, including bread.

All proceeds go into the post's Community Service Fund, which is used to help needy veterans and other residents pay utility bills and rent and buy groceries. After a successful sell-out Veterans Day dance in November, the post donated 125 boxes of goods to military personnel in Iraq.

For more information or to purchase tickets in advance, call Darlene Reetz at (734) 284-7931.
