I’d like to thank all of you who marched with us this year at the Philadelphia Saint Patrick's Parade on Sunday March 10th, 2019. While the day didn’t start out that well weather-wise it improved greatly as the hours progressed toward the parade start. Our numbers showed some improvement over previous years and that was encouraging.

I hope that all of you enjoyed our Friday night get-together and once more at our post-parade event on Sunday. Once again we merged with the Danny Boyle AOH Division 88 with both of our events and again this proved to be a great success. It is my belief and that of Pat Boyle that our two groups merge seamlessly for a good time had by all.

We’ll be making plans for our next big event at the New Jersey shore for our annual Fall Fling. There won’t be too many changes as you “don’t fix what ain’t broken.” If there any thoughts or ideas that any of you feel we could do to make the Fall Fling better, simply send an email to our Recording Secretary, Al Kuchler, at and your idea will be given a fair shot at our next board meeting.  

Keep in touch at our Events section for Fall Fling 2019 information to come.

Harry Marnie, President
