Time to Honor St. Patrick, Irish, and Democratic Roots

How about getting a little exercise this weekend and having some fun, too? Why not march in Pinckney's St. Patrick's Day parade on Saturday (March 15, 2008) with the Livingston County Democratic Party?

Marchers will gather at the Pinckney Elementary School, 935 W. Michigan State Road (M-36) beginning at 11:15 a.m. Parade units must be in line by 11:50 a.m. and will step off at noon for the parade through downtown Pinckney.

The event will conclude with ceremonies in the gazebo in Putnam Township Square honoring Michigan's Military Moms.

As we noted in a previous post, the Democratic Party and the Irish have a particular affinity going back to the 19th century, when the party welcomed Irish immigrants to this country. So honoring the Irish really is honoring our party, as well.
