AmCham and BECC members gather for the Annual St. Patrick’s Day Mingle
On Thursday, March 12, AmCham and BECC jointly kicked off the St. Patrick’s celebrations week with the annual mingle at Madisson’s Bar & Grill, Radisson Blu Sky Hotel.
During the last 10 years AmCham members celebrated St. Patrick’s Day in Estonia and in 2011 invited BECC members to join in for a fun evening with holiday greetings by Irish and American Ambassadors, ice-cold beer, fun trivia… and celebrating all things Irish!
This year was no exception! Over 100 members gathered in Madisson’s for this year’s celebration. The Irish Ambassador to Estonia H.E. Frank Flood delivered his holiday greetings underlining the links between Ireland and the USA, as well as the UK, both social and economic. The American Ambassador Hon. Jeff Levine, congratulated Ambassador Flood on the National Day and echoed the strong ties that America shares with Ireland up to this day!
The program ended with a fun trivia on many interesting facts about Irish culture and St. Patrick’s celebration traditions. Chever Voltmer, U.S. Embassy DCM and James Oates, Chairman of BECC, took the main prize this year and received a generous voucher from Radisson Blu Sky Hotel!
We sincerely thank our host, Radisson Blu Sky Hotel and Madisson’s Bar&Grill, for a terrific atmosphere, delicious snacks and welcome drinks and of course, all event participants for getting into the spirit of the holiday and wearing green!!!
“ May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
And rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand”
