FARGO — Riverview Place Senior Living was founded in 1960 by a religious community from Ireland named the Presentation Sisters .

To celebrate St. Patrick's Day, caregivers got everyone started on some Irish festivities. Their party included karaoke, contests, green beer and snacks.

"We celebrate at the drop of a hat (...), we try to be at least. We don't always succeed, sometimes we're grumpy and crabby, but we try to be a joyful people to show that God is with us," said Sister Mary Margaret Mooney.

Sister Mary Margaret Mooney said their St. Patrick's Day celebration is like no other.

"We will usually have a party of some kind. Singing and dancing are a big part of our lives for us," she said. "Now that most of us can't move too well anymore, so the dancing has diminished considerably, but we can still sing."
