The Rockland County Ancient Order of Hibernians’ St. Patrick’s Parade once again stepped off from the Pfizer campus on Sunday, March 20th. The long-awaited parade was three years in the making, and it did not disappoint. Not only were we blessed by great weather for a day March, but the crowd was large, loud and appreciative. Clearly, everyone had had enough waiting!
Our own Frank McDonagh finally had his march down Central Avenue – congratulations to him and the McDonagh family. Following is a picture of Frank with Division 3 member and Aide to the Grand Marshal Patrick Lenihan. Many thanks to Patrick for his and his mom, Patty’s, efforts in preparing while he was away at college and for carving time out of his break to be there. Your dad, Richie, was smiling down on us that day.
Also, congratulations and thanks go out to the Hanson clan. Scott Hanson finally marched as our Battalion Commander, and the Hansons were there in numbers, with XXX Hanson and XXX Hanson carrying the flags out in front of Division 3.
