Irish eyes were smiling on the Pioneer Trail Senior Centre in Drumheller, a couple of days before beloved St. Patrick's Day.

On Friday, March 15th at 11:30 am, the senior community came together for Irish stew, buns, and the rest of the fixins'.

"It was absolutely excellent, I was stuffed, absolutely stuffed," said Barry Fullerton from the Pioneer Trail Seniors Centre, who attended the meal.

The group not only had Irish stew, but they also had coleslaw, buns and a dessert. It was a great way for seniors to spend some time in the community.

It is a fantastic opportunity for some of the seniors who are alone to come to the Centre to celebrate the Irish tradition to fill spirits, bellies and hearts with stories, laughter and friendship.

"A lot of us seniors are living alone and we need a good lunch," continued Fullerton.

The day was enjoyed by many seniors of the community.

"I think we got about sixty-five to seventy people here," concluded Fullerton.

Some say there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but March 15th, at the Pioneer Trail Senior Centre in Drumheller, they celebrated with a huge pot of stew at the end of their rainbow.
