St. Patrick's Day Season Kick Off 2014



On The March!

Yonkers AOH Kicks Off St. Patrick’s Day Parade Season with Marathon Day of Events

Division One in The 17th Annual White Plains St. Patrick's Day Parade


     Members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians consider the entire Month of March to be the “High Holy Season”, and Division One started off with a dizzying schedule of events on Saturday, March 8th.

 
Division One Marches on Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains

     First up was the 17th Annual White Plains St. Patrick’s Day Parade.  The weather was mild and sunny as we stepped off just after 12 Noon on Mamaroneck Ave.  This marked the first time ever that Division One has participated in The White Plains Parade, and based on our wonderful experience, we plan on being a part of this celebration for a long time to come!

 
Raising The Irish Flag at City Hall in Yonkers

     After the parade in White Plains, it was a quick stop to eat and travel back to Yonkers for the Annual Flag Raising Event at City Hall.  We were joined by the members of The Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee, Irish Community leaders and local, state and national politicians.  Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano, City Council President Liam McLaughlin, State Senator Andrea Stewart Cousins, and Congressman Elliot Engel were in attendance as well.  Everyone then walked across the street to St. Mary’s Church for the parade mass that was celebrated by Bishop Walsh, Msgr. Corrigan, and Mgsr. Barry.

     We were only getting warmed up for the big event…….


     After mass, everyone then traveled across town to Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway for The Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day Parade on McLean Ave. Dinner Dance.  Over 25 members were in attendance to support the parade that Division One founded 59 years ago.

     Congratulations to Kevin Hartnett, who was selected as an Aide to the Grand Marshal of this year’s parade!  Kevin will no doubt represent us proudly as he marches up the Emerald Mile on March 22nd!

     So After 15 hours and 4 separate events, the long day was finally at an end.  Once again, Hibernians led the way in supporting celebrations of Irish Faith, Culture and Heritage.  The month is only starting!  We look forward to seeing everyone at our next parade in Eastchester on March 16th!
