Céad Míle Fáilte!

Welcome to the Home of the Burlington County Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. We are the only Saint Patrick’s Day Parade in Burlington County and we would like to invite you to join us to celebrate our Irish Heritage and Culture at the Parade that will take place on Saturday March, 1 2014 at 1 P.M. in Downtown Mount Holly.

The Parade is a fun filled day with Pipe Bands, Irish Bands Step Dancers and many more examples of Irish Traditions. Please look around the website for more information about the Parade and how to take part. We welcome you to join us either as a volunteer, sponsor or participant. Please contact us if you have any questions and I hope to see you at the Parade. Also meet up with us afterwards at High Street Grill for the official After Party with non stop Irish music on two stages all day and night.

Each year the parade committee also selects a Miss St. Patrick to join our Grand Marshal in leading the parade down the street.  She receives an educational scholarship to help further her studies.  Along with this the Parade committee sponsors and runs several events that showcase Irish Heritage as well as educational and cultural events that will help the public gain a greater understanding of Irish Culture.

We are always looking for new volunteers to take part in the planning and running of the parade. If you are interested please contact us and someone will be in touch with you. I look forward to seeing all of you at next year’s parade.

Funding is made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts from a grant to the Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders, Department of Resource Conservation, Division of Parks.

Please help us Support the Richard’s family

Please join us in support the Richard’s family in Boston. The Richard’s family are a active part of the Boston Irish American Community. Their son Martin lost his life in the Boston Marathon bombing last month. His sister Jane lost her leg and is still in the hospital undergoing several operations. We are joining with numerous over organizations and individuals across the country in helping to raise funds for this family in their time of need. 100% of all funds donated will go to a fund to support the family. I hope that you will consider donating to help them out. Any donation will be greatly appreciated. It does not matter if it is $100 or just a single dollar. Any amount will go towards making the difficult task of dealing with this crisis a little easier. Won’t you lend a hand? Will you lend a dollar to the effort. Please do what you can to help. Thank You

Sincerely,

Jim Logue
President
