As in previous years, The St. Patrick’s Association is selling commemorative buttons to raise funds for this celebration and local charities. Each button comes with a chance toenter a drawing to win $1,500. You can buy buttons, festive face masks, and a “Pot-O-Gold” package that includes a button, face mask, tattoos, beads, gold coins and more, online at More information about the event and the online registration form, visit
