Friendly Sons of St. Patrick 2019 Parade Dignitaries Press release
Every year prior to our annual St. Patrick’s day Parade it is a tradition to hold elections for various dignitaries and include them in our ‘Salute to The Irish.’ These nominations come from either members of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick or people in the community.
During a parade meeting anyone wishing to make a nomination for one of our Dignitaries will have the opportunity to provide a brief presentation explaining any type of involvement a person, business or group has provided to the community and the important roles they play in serving the people of the Spokane Area.
It is wonderful to hear such amazing stories about people, groups and businesses that do so much and give back to our community!
It is the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick Honor to announce the 2019 Parade Dignitaries:
Grand Marsha: Tony Lamanna
Irish Women: Joanne McAtee
Irish Man: Tom Sherry
Irish Colleen: Molly McLaughlin
Irish Clan: Riley
Irish Business: David’s Pizza
