For many families, September marks the time to begin buckling down to studies, getting serious about back-to-school days and looking forward to fall sports such as football.
For the fun of the local Irish, mid-September also is a time to count the days until St. Patrick’s Day, just six months away. And festivities are going full force for the next three days at Casey’s Foods, located in Naperville Plaza, Gartner and Washington.
Outside on the patio, Casey’s Grill on Saturday and Sunday will include grilled Reuben sandwiches in addition to all the regular grill offerings.
Inside, in keeping with their Irish traditions at Casey’s Foods, the independently-owned local supermarket with its friendly green grocer is celebrating “Six Months to St Patrick’s Day,” from now through Sun., Sept. 16.
Large signs in the window and the big shamrock just outside the store promote the good time inside where specials, demos and more will be featured through Sept. 16.
What’s more, Casey’s is giving away three fully cooked traditional St. Paddy’s Dinners, party-sized enough for each winner to serve from eight to ten people. The meal includes: fully cooked corned beef brisket, traditional veggies, Casey’s Irish Soda Bread, homemade Key Lime Cookies and more.
Enter the raffle in the store during regular store hours, seven days a week. The drawing will be held at 5PM on Sun., Sept. 16.
Organizers wish, “Good luck to all!”
And wouldn’t you know? It was just PN’s luck recently to catch Ann Kinney and Paula Kinney reading Positively Naperville on their way into Casey’s Foods to find baking ingredients for their favorite pie recipes.
Casey’s Foods is located at 124 W. Gartner Ave., at Washington St. in Naperville Plaza.
