West Orange Saint Patrick’s Day Parade- March 13, 2016

Attention All Members:

The West Orange Saint Patrick’s Day Parade is on Sunday March 13, 2016.  We have been invited as a department and a union to march as a group in this parade.  This is a great family event.  The parade starts at 12:00 and proceeds down Main Street in West Orange.  After the parade there are a few parties at the end of the parade route that are family friendly oriented and there are several bars and parties that are great fun for adults.  Last year our department marched with our families in the West Orange Saint Patrick’s Day Parade.  Everyone had a great time.  Please see the Union web site for last year’s pictures of our group.  Please consider marching and your family is welcome to march with us.  We need about 20 members minimum to march.  If you are interested please contact our contact information is below.  Hope to see everyone on March 13th.

Contact Pat Cassidy or Brian Mulligan for more info.
