Top o’ the morning

Cloverdale's Tom O'Finn is making the rounds, wishing everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Tom O'Finn dropped by the Cloverdale Reporter offices this morning to wish everyone a happy St. Patrick's Day.

Green suit? Check.

Shamrock hat, tie and vest? Check.

Traditional shillelagh walking cane made from blackthorn wood?

Check.

Wait a second. That’s no leprechaun. It’s Cloverdale’s Tom O’Finn, who is out wishing everyone a happy St. Patrick’s Day – as we speak.

Later, he’s heading over to George Derby Centre to visit with Canadian veterans of the armed forces.

But it’s back home to Cloverdale this afternoon for Finn, a veteran of the Korean War.

Finn planned to head over to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 6, hosting its annual St. Patrick’s Day dinner and dance.

Dinner starts at 5 p.m. Irish stew, salad and bun is $8.50. Entertainment begins at 5:30 with Irish dancers, followed by music to dance to by Hong Kong Cowboy, from 7 to 11 p.m.

Thanks for the show of Celtic pride, Tom!
