A warm "Hello" to all and may it stay warm. The busy St. Patrick's Season is winding down and hopefully you were able to enjoy it one way or another. The next County Roscommon Society meeting is Sunday, April 27, 2014 at 2:00 PM in Willie McBride's, 616 Grand St., Hoboken, NJ. www.williemcbrides.com 201-610-1522. We will be going over the final numbers of our Dinner Dance and be discussing possible social outings for the spring and summer. We also have some Roscommon souvenirs for distribution that were provided by our Roscommon County Council guest attending our dinner dance: Mayor of Roscommon, Martin Connaughton and Frank Dawson, the Roscommon County Manager. THANKS to the County Council!
The County Roscommon Society had a nice size group marching up 5th Avenue in the New York City Saint Patrick's Day Parade. A big thanks to all who come out and to those who helped carry our banner and flags. Please keep the Society informed of the passing or illness of any of our members past or present so that we may keep others informed. Our website will be updated shortly with pictures from our 2014 85th Annual Dinner Dance (Honorees Martin O'Grady and Patrick Finn) and the 2014 New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade.
