The Wearing of the Green

The River Creek Club will have a couple of occasions to honor St. Patrick’s Day: a happy hour on March 17 from 5-7 p.m., then on March 19 a brunch from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. that will include St. Pat’s pancakes and waffles—no doubt with a green hue. The cost for adults is $21.95 and for kids $7.95.

This annual celebration marks the death of St. Patrick in 452 AD, and it’s advisable for all concerned to wear something green on that date.

Sprout Therapeutic

On March 18, from 5:30-8 p.m., the River Creek Club will be the scene of the continuing series of Martinis Matter, this time to support Sprout Therapeutic Riding and Education Center. Sprout combines the equine world with special needs and “seeks to raise public awareness about special needs and to provide dynamic learning, recreation, socialization and therapy opportunities for individuals and groups in a farm environment.”

According to psychologists, a horse’s gait resembles human movement and when a person with impaired mental faculties rides it's “therapy for the damaged pathways, and the body begins to respond. It starts by relaxing and strengthening the muscles and improving balance and coordination. Riders begin to have a sense of empowerment, self-confidence, and a renewed sense of ability and hope.”

The event will include a silent auction combined with a signature martini for $10, half of which will be donated to the center. Members and guests are welcome with no entry fee.
