After Mass, refreshments will be served thanks to the Pioneers of the Sacred Heart.
We are appealing to everyone young and old to come out on Sunday, March 12th at 1:30pm to show the spectators our pride in our true Irish heritage as we march down the streets of New Haven.
We need a total of 42 people to carry the various County flags in the parade. Thank you to the members who have signed up already to carry a flag. Let’s hope the sun will be shining! IACC President Anne Hines is still working on organizing our Club’s marching contingent for our Parade and hopes to hear from you. Still a few flags not spoken for!
If anyone is interested in marching or carrying one of our many County flags, please contact Anne. The appointment of flag bearers is on a first come, first served basis. Call/text to (203) 215-5997 or email firstname.lastname@example.org early if you have a particular flag you wish to carry.
There will be a bus leaving from our Club at 11am SHARP!! to bring us to the starting point of the parade.
After the parade, the bus will bring the marchers back to the club for ceol agus craic.
Entertainment by The Jolly Beggars starting at 4pm.
No admission charge. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
Please don’t let the people down who revived this grand parade in 1956. Some of them may have passed on, but their memories are still with us.
