St. Patrick's Parade 2022

 Wilmington’s Parade will take place on Saturday, March 12th and we will be participating with a slightly different approach.  We will still play music from the truck and proudly show off our Erin Award winners but the Dancers and Walkers will parade up the street together.  We are planning to dance through the reviewing stand area doing a 2 or 3 hand dance that keeps us moving rather than stop and do a longer dance.  Please let me know if you will be in the parade so we can have a County Banner ready for you to wear.  Also, since there will not be an After Parade Party at the Club this year, we plan to gather at Timothy’s on the Waterfront after the parade to socialize and have a bite to eat.  If you would like to join us, please call Mary Collins at 302-369-0101 so she can add you to the reservation.

Where & When to Meet: Near the YMCA at 233 King Street at 11:00 am. The parade kicks off at 12 Noon.

 What to Wear:  Men – Black Trousers; Aran or White Sweater; 

                                     County Banner (On right shoulder)
                          Ladies – Green Shawl (On left shoulder with Irish Pins); 
                                         Black or Dark Shoes if possible     

 Hope to see many of you on Saturday, March 12th.
