On Tuesday, March 12, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, the Monessen Center for Active Adults prepared a special St. Patrick’s Day Celebration with lunch and a show featuring singer Joe Diamond.

The lunch kicked off at 12:00 noon followed by brownies and a Shamrock Shake for dessert. The event also had fun activities and games that included prizes.

Joe Diamond, a self-taught country and oldies singer and guitarist began his performance around 1:00 PM, and soon had the Monessen Center singing and enjoying the entertainment. Diamond specializes in sing-a-longs and story telling. He sang such songs as, “When Irish Eyes are Smiling,” and “If You’re Happy and You Know it.”

Diamond has been a veterinarian for 30 years, now practicing in North Strabane. He has been singing for 60 years, and performs in nursing homes, senior centers, personal care homes, and retirement homes.

“We have a variety of different shows we do and we try to have an event at least once a month,” said Monessen Center Manager Miriam Boso. Other past performers at the Center have included, “Patsy Cline” with “Johnny Cash,” and also “Cathy Rhodes.” Boso said that a performance from “Elvis” will be coming in the near future.

For monthly events at the Monessen Center for Active Adults, look for our information in publication, or call the Center at 724-684-6105, and ask for Miriam.
