Our group participated in the 36th Annual Bergen County St. Patrick's Day Parade on Sunday, March 12th. The parade was held in Bergenfield, NJ.
Dan Boland, one of our founders (pictured above left) was honored as an aide to the Grand Marshal. Dan, who passed away this past October, was represented by his wife Eileen and their sons: Sean, Matt, and Tom at the parade.
Our group also participated in the Yonkers St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday, March 18th. Preceding the parade, we visited The Sacred Heart Monastery Church, the site of Fr. Solanus' first assignment as a priest.
Congratulations to Tim O'Donnell - our 2016 Hibernian of the Year!
