Shamrocks and St. Patrick's Day

Original post made by Irish Connected, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Mar 16, 2007

To add to the festivities of St. Patrick's Day being celebrated by almost everyone, I thought I would share the story of St. Patrick.

That description is true, but it does not begin to relate the effects of what St. Patric did. The ramifications of his story reached and shaped the whole world.

Read How the Irish Saved Civilization by Thomas Cahill for a better idea of the events he put in motion.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
