Davenport and the Quad Cities love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and the month of March provides opportunity and hope for celebrating the coming of Spring and all things green. With that in mind, here are some of the March Mischief folks engaged in 100 years ago!
As always, the roaring twenties called for dancing!!
How about something for the younger set? A “Mixer” would be just the thing to meet up with a lucky leprechaun! Chaperoned, naturally.
Timeless green carnations are always a hit!
St. Patrick’s Day is always a great theme for a tea or card party! Everyone likes to be social!!
How about a spring carnival? That sounds like a good time!
The Ancient Order of Hibernians and their ladies auxiliary provided an Irish program, naturally.
This wouldn’t be complete without an Irish toast!
For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way.
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day for Richardson-Sloane Special Collections Center!
