 Ozzie and Sue Jordan, Don and Andrea Paul and Cathy and Jim Finnegan show off their St. Patrick’s Day attire. Ozzie and Sue Jordan, Don and Andrea Paul and Cathy and Jim Finnegan show off their St. Patrick’s Day attire. Twas the wearing of the green and the eight inches of snow that fell in South Jersey didn’t deter a crowd from gathering at the Tuckahoe Inn to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The Exchange Club brought their favorite ladies to their dinner meeting that night. Andrea Paul and this columnist staked out a table in the dining room then joined our husbands in the lounge to enjoy the social hour.  Warren Iredell and Bill Culp told me the Exchange Club has resurrected their Shrimp and Beef Night that will be held April 26 at the Seaville Fire Hall. I almost didn’t recognize Ron Denney who sported a green plaid tam with red hair and a mustache to the party. Frank McCall, who wore a cream color hand knit sweater he got when visiting Ireland in 2005, liked Ron’s hat so much that Ron gave Frank an extra one he brought with him. David Powell gave these guys a run for their money in his tall green and white stripe Cat in the Hat style hat.
