Ulster Project Picnic July 6

Update: The Irish teens have arrived and are with their American hosts.  Throughout the month of July there are several public Ulster Project events at which Hibernian Society may meet the visitors.  Most importantly for Hibs is our picnic July 6 (see below). Click here for the full public event schedule and details on the Utah Ulster Project.

The Hibernian Society's Picnic with the Utah Ulster Project is July 6 at Fairmont Park in Sugarhouse.  Each July, Utah Ulster Project brings in a group of teenagers from Omagh to spend the month with American host families.  The annual picnic is a great opportunity to meet the always-charming Irish and get to know the wonderful Ulster Project volunteers.  The main course will be provided by the Hibernians, BBQ chicken and salad.  Please feel free to supplement the food with something from home.  The afternoon will include games and surprise entertainment.  Ulster Project Utah is among the biggest supporters of the Hibernian's annual St. Patrick's Day celebrations.  Call Tom to help out.
