After 7:30 P.M. (Regular Price) $12 Nonmembers, $8 Members/Students (If you plan to dance a good portion after 8, this is the price for you)

Passage

With a heavy heart and a sad mind we have to make the announcement that our long term member Patti Bates has succumbed to her stage four cancer and has left us this Saturday. She has been a regular dancer at our ceilis for a long long time and she will be sadly missed both as a friend an as a dancer.
In her honor, the PCS will dedicate our next ceili (Friday the 20th) to her.
We will have a little book there where people can leave some notes about her which we then will give to her sister who accompanied her in the last stages of her life.
Please come and help us remember her.
(We will have a separate 'official' announcement for the upcoming ceili shortly.
