Warm weather makes you want to get outside

Published 5:04 pm Saturday, March 14, 2015

It’s been so nice outside which makes you hope that spring is on its way. Astronomically speaking, the March equinox occurs when the sun crosses the celestial equator on its way north along the ecliptic.

In the northern hemisphere, the March equinox is known as the vernal, or spring, equinox, and marks the start of the spring season.

If the weather makes you feel like you would like to get out, we have a fun program for you. Whether you’re Irish or Irish-at-heart join us for an afternoon of fun at noon on Tuesday and maybe get the luck of the Irish.
