We will have a paint workshop where we will each paint a martini glass while enjoying Irish tea and scones.  We’ll lunch at noon on steak, shrimp, and clams and then listen to live Irish music from 1:30 to 3:30. Afterward, we’ll tour the new Irish tea shop, and we’ll arrive home at 5 p.m.

The cost is $45 for residents and $55 for non-residents, which is not refundable.  To make a reservation, please make your check payable to “Village of Altamont.”  You may bring your payment to the regular Tuesday luncheon; mail it to the Altamont Seniors, Post Office Box 227, Altamont, NY 12009; or drop it off at the village office.  Call Kathy Adams at 861-6258 if you have any questions.
