Nora would like to thank our former Treasurer, Paul Mahoney, and his wife Jane for keeping the money straight on Feis day. We missed thanking them in person, as was the case with the cadets from Delaware MilitaryAcademy. They filled in anywhere needed and worked all day. We are grateful that they chose to earn their community service credits by helping out the ICCD. Good job, Cadets!
Our special thanks to everyone from the McAleer, McHugh and DoCairde Schools of Irish Dance who do so much to keep our Feis running smoothly every year. Your work is invaluable!
Actually, everyone who helps out on Feis day or in setting up the day before, in so many ways, deserves our most sincere gratitude. Miracle-worker Nora and her committees tie everything together and keep it moving forward...and all who are there to help, whatever their roles, make it happen!
And, most of all, the ICCD--members and Board--all thank Nora for her dedication and hard work, every year!
