2011-03-04 / Rockaway St. Patrick's Day Parade

Mrs. Joan Dalton

DEPUTY GRAND MARSHAL

Both John and I were born in NYC – he in Manhattan and I in the Bronx.

We came to Rockaway “all year round” in 1964; before that it was the family “Riveria.”

Both of us are retired, John from the NYPD, and of course, Johnny still does the morning cleaning for the boys at the grill.

We moved to Harbor Isle in 2004. Coleen has the house in Rockaway.

Our great accomplishment is our children, they are great and of course the cream on the cake is grandchildren (22) and great grandchildren (4).

Both John and I are of Irish heritage. His people were Waterford and mine were from Leitrim. We have visited Ireland a number of times. The best was our trip as a family to Adare for Thanksgiving.
