The IAHC Shamrock Kids Club will be honoring the legacy of Irish American artist and peace activist, Matt Lamb, with an Umbrellas for Peace celebration at the Irish Heritage Center on October 13 at 3:00 p.m. The children will be painting their umbrellas with messages of peace, tolerance and hope in conjunction with the Irish Books, Art, and Music (IBAM) celebration weekend at the Heritage Center.
The umbrella painting will be followed by an umbrella parade through the community. The Irish American Heritage Center is located at 4626 N. Knox Ave., Chicago, IL.
We hope to have children, ages 4 to 14, participate in our Umbrellas for Peace event. There is no charge and the children can bring their umbrella home.
We do have a limit of umbrellas so please reserve your spot by calling Mary Gorski (847) 707-5213 or Pat Michalski 708-383-0373. Please call with the children’s name and age to register, Thank you.
