Kudos To Mike Benn
Irish eyes were surely smiling on all in Rockaway as we marched and watched the celebration of our culture and heritage during the 37th annual Rockaway St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 3. Kudos to Mike Benn and all involved from the Queens County St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Cultural Committee for their hard work and passion in organizing such a spectacular event for our community.
As a 2012 Deputy Grand Marshall of the parade, I would like to personally thank St. John’s Episcopal Hospital for nominating me, and for the Parade Committee in selecting me for such an honored role. It truly was a wonderful experience marching and greeting all my friends and neighbors from the community along the parade route.
Thank you again for keeping the Irish tradition and culture alive in Rockaway.
