More than 150 alums and residents of various cultures attended the event.
There were raffles at the dinner, with all proceeds going to purchase a new SMART Board for the school.
Although St. Patrick’s Day isn’t until March 17, attendees donned green robes, shirts, ties and hats. There was traditional Celtic food, including corned beef and cabbage, and women performed Irish step dancing.
People also danced to live music by the Boston Burglars, an Irish American band that plays rock and roll.
“We wanted the St. Pancras school alumni to come back and celebrate with us every year on this very important occasion,” said Glendale Civilian Observation Patrol president Frank Kotnik, who is a St. Pancras alum and was the emcee at the event. “You didn’t have to be Irish to come here. It makes no difference. This is a school, parish, alumni thing.”
