On March 18th, for the first time, we participated in Montreal’s 183rd Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, walking behind the Karnak Shriners. Although we only got confirmation from the United Irish Society five days before the parade, and the fact that we had had a snow storm the day before, we had 14 members participate, and one non-member. The weather was a little cold and windy in the morning, but it soon warmed up as we got going, both from the sun that finally came out, and the friendship and fellowship enjoyed by everyone. I want to thank Sister Debbie Gamble of Rosemount-St. Lambert Chapter #15, who made the suggestion that we participate in the parade.
We had a super day and it was a great way for us to get ourselves known. Hopefully we can make this an annual event.
