• NIAA General Meeting The next Nutley Irish General Meeting will be on November 19, 2015 at 8pm.

• Night at the Races
We will once again be hosting the NIGHT AT THE RACES! This year, the event will take place on November 14 at the Nutley Elks. For those unfamiliar with the Night at the Races, we will be playing a DVD (never been opened) of a horse race from an undisclosed location on an undisclosed date. The horses can be purchased for $25 and you can name the horse and jockey. As an owner, if your horse wins, you automatically win a $50 Visa Gift Card. The horses will also be running odds. People can gamble on the horses to win as if they were at the racetrack. There is no cover charge for this event. All winnings can be exchanged for raffle tickets that can be used to win great prizes. Donations will also be accepted for prizes. If you have a prize to donate or would like to purchase a horse, please email: email@example.com

Our Annual NIAA Christmas Party will be on Friday December 4th at 7pm. We welcome all members and their families to join us to celebrate the holidays with each other.
This event will be pot luck, so please feel free to bring your favorite dish to share with others.
There will be a special appearance by the big man himself…SANTA! Please bring a wrapped toy for your child for Santa to give them. We will so be running a toy drive for underprivileged children. If you would like to participate in that, please bring in an unwrapped toy.
Joe Castles will once again be organizing this event.
Please contact him with any questions and let him know what you will be bringing, so we can ensure there is enough food for everyone.
Due to the success of the Holiday Cards for heroes we did at last years Nov meeting, we will be doing something similar this year. We will be doing cards for our local Veterans. We will have cards available at the November meeting and the Christmas party to fill out. Or maybe your child would like to design their own at home, feel free to bring them in and we will pass along.
