"It's a great event. The seniors love the tradition of it and they're very festive," said Julie Ludwig, recreation manager for the village of Libertyville.

The program featured a lunch of corned beef and cabbage, boiled potatoes and soda bread, with dancing later to the music of The Ron Barron Trio.

"They have a nice crowd. We like to come to all the lunches because they do a great job," Frank Bing of Buffalo Grove said after dancing with his wife, Sue.

The event was sponsored by HomeInstead Senior Care in Grayslake, which provides nonmedical care for seniors in their homes. This includes light housekeeping, cooking meals, providing companionship, offering transportation and other in-home jobs.

After lunch, seniors danced to The Ron Barron Trio, which played dance music and Irish traditional songs, including "Danny Boy," "Wild Irish Rose," and "When Irish Eyes are Smiling."
