It was “Dinner and a Movie” with lots of “appetizers and desserts” as hundreds flocked to Lincoln Parish Park for the sixth annual event sponsored by the Junior Auxiliary.

Today, around the country, and in some parts of the world, those of Irish descent, along with those who are not, are paying tribute to one of the world’s most renowned Saints — St. Patrick.
