    "We are celebrating the 106th St. Pat's celebration this year," said Coterie president, Kay DuBois.
    Ticket price includes dinner and dancing to live music by the band "The Rat Pack", and presentation of the St. Pat's Court. Cocktails will be served from a cash bar at 5:30, dinner at 7 and dancing from 8-11 p.m.
    "This year's theme is Shake, Rattle and Roll," said DuBois. "We'll have a photo booth again this year, and we also have a special performance by an Irish Dancing Troupe. The menu and music this year are both fantastic!"
    DuBois said that the St. Pat's Ball is open to the public.
