We are looking for volunteers to sit at the front door on St. Patrick’s Day. We will have 2 hour shifts starting at 10AM. We will need 2 people at the door for each time slot. If there is an overwhelming surge of volunteers, we may be able to arrange 1 hour shifts. These volunteer slots fill up quickly so call in your preferred times ASAP! New volunteers are welcome – it’s the best seat in the Club that day!!

To volunteer for the ‘door’, please call Bette Leary at 203-767-0117. Time slots will be given out with the caller’s preference as they come in.

ALL MEMBERS will be required to show their membership card or pay the $5 guest fee.

All guests will be charged $5 on St. Patrick’s day. Be sure to have your membership card with you. Many of the door volunteers don’t know long standing members by sight or by name so PLEASE have your card with you.

“My Name is Joan” A Documentary

“My Name is Joan” A Documentary
Wednesday March 8th @ 6pm
Bethel Cinema

The story of Susan Drew, (known to many of us at the GAC) was born Joan Fagan to an unwed mother in the St. Patrick Mother and Baby Home in Dublin, Ireland in 1949.  While the documentary chronicles Susan’s journey to find her true identity, it also highlights the illegal exporting of children by the Catholic Church to families in other countries for profit while the Irish Government looked the other way.  The Irish Government still denies adopted children access to their information even though forced adoption affects at least a quarter of the Irish population. The screening is March 8 @ 6pm at The Bethel Cinema, 269 Greenwood Avenue, Bethel, CT. Tickets will be available at www.bethelcinema.com.
