SCOTCH PLAINS/WESTFIELD, NJ -- The prices are low but the spirits will be high when the popular St. Patrick's Day Lunch is served up once again by the Knights of Columbus Council 1711 in Westfield on Saturday, March 17.

This festive event, sponsored by the Columbian Club, at the building that is located at 2400 North Avenue, on the border of Westfield and Scotch Plains.

Lunch will be served starting at 12:00 noon and will feature corned beef sandwiches and the fixings. The meals will continue to be offered until all the beer runs out that Saturday.

"For the outlandish price of $6 you can receive a meal that includes desert. The cash bar will serve its usual bargain prices," says Bruce Moran, a longtime member of the Knights of Columbus. "If you can't stick around and enjoy the atmosphere, then for $8 you can take your meal to go. But the Columbian Club members do urge you to stay and absorb the experience."

All are welcome to take in this lively event, so bring you friends and family.

The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic fraternal benefit society that stays true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity. The Knights was formed to render financial assistance to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.
