January 2018

Dear Friends:
This year we celebrate the Fifteenth Anniversary of the Sussex County St.
Patrick’s Day events.

The Grand Marshal’s Luncheon is scheduled for
Sunday, February 18th at the Irish Cottage Inn in Franklin. The festivities will
begin at 2 p.m.

We are honoring the 2018 Parade Grand Marshal, Betsy Reilly Sutherland.
Please join us in celebrating her achievements and influences as a member of
the Sussex County Community.

We are pleased to announce that the Town of Newton will again host the
Sussex County St. Patrick’s Day Parade scheduled for Saturday, March 17th,
beginning at 11:30 a.m.

We are planning to hold a Mass at St. Jude’s R.C. Church in Hamburg on
Saturday, March 3th, at 8:30 a.m. A Traditional Irish Breakfast will follow
beginning at 10 a.m. at the Irish Cottage Inn located in Franklin.

As you may imagine, these events come with considerable expense and are
only possible through your generous support and the hard work of our
committee and other volunteers.

As has become a tradition, the Grand Marshal selects a charity to receive the
net proceeds of our benevolent events. This year’s chosen charity is Birth

Please indicate your preference(s) for supporting these events by completing

St. Patrick’s Committee, Inc.

Best Wishes for a Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year!
