On Thursday, March 14, 2013, the seniors in Harvard enjoyed a yummy corned-beef dinner. An event of this magnitude cannot happen without a lot of help from the community.

The Harvard Council on Aging would like to thank: St. Theresa's Church for the use of its lovely hall; Allison Thornton and the second, third and fourth grades from Hildreth Elementary School for a wonderful Mandala presentation; Grace Miller's Brownie Troop 30741 for the lovely place mats and table decorations; Janice Kennedy and her Junior Girl Scout Troop 30892 for the yummy Irish soda bread; and of course, the Harvard Lions Club and men's group for preparing, cooking and serving this luscious luncheon to our seniors.

The Raglan Road Irish duo was supported in part by a grant from the Harvard Cultural Council, a local agency that is supported by Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Great job, everyone -- this was truly a community accomplishment!
