St. Patrick’s Day 2012

If the Mayan Calendar is right and this is our last St. Patrick’s Day, it is safe to say that all those in attendance at Knox’s 15th annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration really made the most of it. A good time was had by all!

The day began with a 2 hour class on preventive maintenance taught my Knox Machinery’s chief service leprechaun himself, Doug McPhillips (yes, that really is his name!)

Doug’s informative class on how to extend the life of equipment and reduce maintenance coststhrough proper daily and weekly PM schedules will surely help our customers to save a pot of gold on their service bills.

After the class wrapped up, the focus quickly shifted to FUN and FOOD. A crowd of about 100 lads and lassies descended on Knox Machinery for the finest Irish feast this side of Dublin, including:

  • Bullwinkle’s famous corned beef, cabbage and bread pudding
  • Deb Perkins amazing Guinness brownies with Baileys icing
  • Margie Knox (”Herself’s”) homemade bootlegged Irish cream
  • Jerry Gehret’s awesome jalapeno peach jelly and smoking homemade salsa
  • Sasha’s incredible smoked venison tenderloin
  • And Greg Knox’s (“Himself’s”) Quasi-authentic Irish soda bread and UBER authentic Irish homebrew Knox Home Brew Logo

There was entertainment a-plenty provided by friends and family, complete with authentic Irish dancing, viola and violin (thanks Mrs. Claus!) virtuoso guitar provided by Mr. Michael Kalter and badly butchered ballads provided by Himself.

If the Mayan calendar ISN’T right, you can mark your calendars and save the date for March 15th, 2013
