-Don’t Miss the St. Patrick’s Day “Pub” crawl on Monday at 1pm, being held over on Sunnydale! Come collect snacks and Irish fare and be a part of the celebration! And speaking of St. Patrick’s Day…did you know St. Patrick was actually from England, and he was kidnapped and taken to Ireland as a slave at 16 years old. He later became a missionary and helped convert Ireland to Christianity. Legend has it that during one of his sermons, all the snakes in Ireland were driven into the sea. To this day, there are no snakes in Ireland.
