Members of the Young Women's League of Reading visited Daniel's House on Thursday, March 20 for a St. Patrick's Day Sing-A-Long.  Residents dined on ice cream cake and punch, while members of the League and pianist George lead a rousing chorus of traditional Irish tunes.  Children of League members danced along to the music, and all in attendance are already looking forward to next year's event. 

The Young Women’s League of Reading, Inc. is a philanthropic organization, benefiting individual charities, scholarships, and social needs in the Reading, MA area. In the past five years alone, the group has raised and returned to the community more than $60,000.

All funds raised by the Young Women’s League of Reading are disbursed annually among community groups, foundations, organizations and families in need.
