The 2017 Billy Buzzee "St. Pat on the Back" Award

The BOD has created a new award in honor of our late friend, Billy Buzzee.  The Billy Buzzee "St. Pat on the Back" will be awarded annually to any individual or group, Club member or not, in recognition of their selfless contribution to the Sons of Erin itself or in recognition of their efforts to foster, promote and perpetuate the furtherance of Irish-American culture.  

We are happy to announce that this year's recipient is Tom Kane Sr.  Tom's work in the kitchen and on the grill is unending.  His corned beef dinners and sandwiches would make Billy proud.  As a past winner of the Thomas M. Kane Irishman of the Year named for his dad, it's obvious that Tom has been involved in many of the Club's events and functions.  He cooks dinner on Irish Night, and works the grill for our Irish Festivals and other functions.  His dedication to the Club extends outside the kitchen as well.  He has served on the Board of Directors of the Club for several years as well.  Congratulations Tom!
