Calling all GDICF and GDICC members! During the month of August, while supplies last, Stop & Shop will give a free reusable bag in exchange for a plastic bag to recycle! We are asking our members to bring a plastic bag to Stop & Shop in exchange for a reusable bag, and then donate the reusable bag to the GDICC for our Christmas dinner donations!
The purpose of the GDICF is to establish a permanent place in the Danbury community dedicated to preserving the cultural influences and historical contributions of the Irish people who emigrated to this country and in particular to the Danbury area. Centered by the motto “Tradition, Pride, Friendship and Community”, the Greater Danbury Cultural Foundation (and the Greater Danbury Irish Cultural Center) will be a place where the Irish language, music and dance can be taught to young and old alike: Irish books and history may be collected and shared: and Irish Craic (camaraderie) may be enjoyed.
Get excited about your Irish heritage or explore Irish culture at the GDICC and through its activities!
