Our 1916 Easter Rising Memorial Fund is well under way. To date, 67 members have made a donation to our fund, for which we are graciously appreciative. We have 6,000 members in our Gaelic American Club. If 2,000 members made a donation of $25, we could reach our goal of $45,000. Please consider our request for a monetary contribution. This memorial, a monument which will be placed on the GAC grounds, will teach our children and grandchildren the sacrifice made by seven brave heroes and many more who gave their lives so Ireland could gain their independence from England. The GAC has a great library where you can find plenty of information about the 1916 Easter Rising. The year 2016 will mark 100 years of freedom. We have a commemorative pin to help with our fundraising. Pins are $5 and can be purchased at the Club on weekends. Please see one of the committee members. Don't forget your donation to honor our fallen heroes who sacrificed themselves for independence. We need every member's support. Contributions can be made payable to the "100th Anniversary Committee" and mailed to: Tom Keane, Treasurer, 310 Old Post Rd., Fairfield, CT. 06824.
This committee is independent of all other organizations.
Your cooperation as a Club Member is appreciated.

The State of Connecticut requires that all club members sign-in any and all non members they are bringing into the club.
If you do not comply with this law, you are putting the club's liquor license in jeopardy and you are also jeopardizing your own membership.
The sign-in book for non members is on the desk at the front entry.
Although we have a group of dedicated volunteers on the Failte Committee that greet and assist people entering the club, it is not staffed at all times. More volunteers are needed. It is a great way for new members to meet people. If interested, contact Sue Allen.
