St. Patrick's Day Parade Season 2017

Yonkers Division Marches in Local
St. Patrick’s Day Parades

Division #1 Marching Past St. Patrick's Cathedral in NYC Parade

     The Ancient Order of Hibernians often refers to the month of March as the “High Holy Season” and for good reason, as the members of Division #1 Yonkers participated in four St. Patrick’s Day Parades within a 7 day span this year.  The Division once again marched with pride and dignity and was also able to help honor 2 members who were selected as Aides to the Grand Marshal in New York City and Yonkers.

     The White Plains and Sleepy Hollow Parades on March 11th and 12th were held despite bitter cold weather with temperatures hovering around 20 degrees.  Division #1 nevertheless proudly marched in both with a proud display of dedication and determination.

     This year Division #1 marched in the 256th Annual New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade where several inches of snow which had blanketed the city only 2 days before March 17th.  The NYC Sanitation Department did a wonderful job clearing the parade route.

     This year was very special as Division #1 President Kevin Ellis was chosen as the Westchester County Aide to the Grand Marshal.  President Ellis greeted the Division as they came up 5th Avenue and marched with them as they passed the reviewing stand.

     The very next day, Division #1 participated in the 62nd Annual Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day Parade, where Cardinal Timothy Dolan was selected as the parade Grand Marshal.  Sean McEvoy was chosen as the Aide to the Grand Marshal for his years of dedication to Division #1 and the entire Yonkers Irish Community.  This was a very well deserved and overdue honor and we couldn’t be more proud of Sean on this day!

     The Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day Parade was founded by Division #1 Yonkers in 1955.  The Division now assists the Parade Committee with unit formation and then takes it place of honor as the last marching unit to come up the Emerald Mile each year.

     Thanks to all the members who make the effort to march in all of our parades each and every year!  We are already looking "down the road" to next years St. Patrick's Day Parade Season!
