Letter from the President:
What we accomplished on our summer vacation…..
The 2009 Golf Outing to support the Irish Radio Program was a great
success this year. We made over $3,000.00 which goes directly to the Radio Show.
Thanks for all the sponsors, golfers, cooks, kitchen crew & to Jesse
Anaya for pulling it all together.
Special thanks go out to the many volunteers that showed up to
clean up in June.
A lot of elbow grease went into sprucing the place up and the effort
is much appreciated.
Wow, summer is almost over & it’s time for back to basics, back
to school & back to the Gaelic League.
The calendar of events is full of interesting & fun things to
join in. There is something for everyone here. You can find your roots,
learn to speak Gaelic & keep your toes tapping, and it is all right
here at your club.
On Monday nights from 8-10pm Anne McCallum will teach us how to set
dance. For just $4.00 you can join the group and swing your partner.
Language is back
every Wednesday; starting September 16th @ 7pm. Justin Manning
will teach you a word or two. The cost is $3.00 & you could dazzle your
friends with some catchy Gaelic words.
There is Ceili every Friday, in the hall from 8:00 – 10:00.
Newcomers are always welcome and you can be sure that Kitty Heinzman will
keep you moving & grooving. Great way to burn off some of those
Guinness calories and it only cost $7.00.
The Irish Genealogy Society of Michigan meets the 3rd
Saturday of every month. Lunch is available at 11:00am & the meetings
start at 1:30pm. Lots of good information and helpful speakers to get you
started or help you continue to trace your family tree.
Pub Quiz’s are held the 3rd Sunday of every month
beginning September 20 @4pm. It cost
$5.00 to participate. You're welcome
to bring a team of five or join in with another team. Lunch is included in the cost, so bring a
dish to pass & put your thinking cap on for an afternoon of common
knowledge & lots of fun.
The Euchre parties are starting again, too. You don’t need a
partner and beginners are always welcome.
Ten bucks gets you in the game and includes light snacks &
prizes. Plan to join us on September 19 @7:00pm.
As Fall arrives remember: your club stays great because of your
support & participation. Hope to see you around!

The “Green Pages” are officially going GREEN. This business and service directory,
introduced in 2007, is now being created on our website, www.gaelicleagueofdetroit.org.
This guide provides business card size ads of
businesses, individuals, and organizations supportive and servicing the
Metro Detroit Irish Community.
Although our first paper edition was well received, it
was limited in distribution and its timeliness. This new online version of the “Green
Pages” can be updated regularly. It
can be viewed by more potential customers (our website currently averages
25,000 viewers monthly) and it’s paperless.
During this economic struggle it’s important for all of
us to support and patronize those businesses, individuals, and
organizations who have faithfully serviced our Irish community for
years. The services and goods
featured on the “Green Pages” range from skilled labor, automotive, financial,
legal, medical, arts, etc. Also
promoted are Irish dance and music instructors, entertainers, pubs,
restaurant, and Irish Gift shops.
There is a minimal fee to promote your business or
organization. The fees are: $10/mo, $25/ 3 mos., or $90/ yr. If interested in advertising contact
Kathleen at 313-96-Irish or checkout the website and email us. The fee helps defray the Irish radio show
It’s been a great year for baseball in Detroit. The Tigers are in first place
and many of our rival team fans have stopped by the club. They have
purchased drinks, tee shirts, books and even memberships. We appreciate
