Quick Parade Update

St. Patrick’s Day/Evacuation Day Parade plans are almost firmed up.  In an interview on Monday, Wacko Hurley said they should be finalized after an Allied War Veterans meeting on Thursday, March 9.  Around 100 participants are expected, including some 34 bands of all kinds and descriptions.  And there’ll be plenty for the kids – Star Wars, the Tin Men, and the Shriners’ mini-motorcycle ensemble.  The USS Philippine Sea (CG-58), commanded by Capt. Eugene F. Moran, Jr., USN, will dock at the Black Falcon Pier Thursday afternoon, March 16.  Last Sunday, at the Allied War Veterans Chief Marshal’s Banquet, the Claddagh Society presented Wacko with a $38,000 check, the proceeds from the 2006 Mayor’s Race, which Brian Mahoney won.  The Parade kicks off at 1 p.m., Sunday, March 19.  It will one of the best ever.
