BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Berkeley Heights Senior Citizens really got into the Irish spirit at the Berkeley Heights Seniors St. Patrick's Day luncheon on March 17 at Mount Carmel Hall.
Whether Irish or not, many of the men and women donned their green to add to the festivities. They listened to the delightful array of Irish melodies performed by the "The Chatham Brass". The large crowd of 200 senior citizens joined in by singing along on some of the songs.
Corned beef sandwiches were on the menu along with cookies.
Organizing the party was Ramona Rademacher, chairwoman of the Celebration committee.
Anyone 55 years of age and older is welcome to join the club. For more information on the club, contact Joan Luciano at 908-665-9604.
About The Chatham Brass
The Chatham Brass, a.k.a “CCB-Brass”, is an ensemble comprised of usually five Chatham Community Band members. It was formed in 2004 to provide an intimate musical entertainment experience. Many of the performances have been at area nursing homes, Runnells Hospital and have included seniors groups in Millburn-Short Hills, Washington Twp., Basking Ridge and W. Orange. The Chatham Brass’ growing repertoire includes music for the holiday season, lots of ragtime and marches, popular standards, Broadway tunes, polkas, oom-pah music and classical works popularized by world-famous brass quintets..
