Dear Friends:

This year we celebrate the Fourteenth Anniversary of the Sussex County St. Patrick’s Day events. The Grand Marshal’s Luncheon is scheduled for Sunday, February 19th at the Irish Cottage Inn in Franklin, N.J.. The festivities begin at 2 p.m. with a Buffet Style Luncheon with music and entertainment and an Open Bar thru 5 p.m..

We are honoring the 2017 Parade Grand Marshal Paul B. Crowley of Franklin, New Jersey.  Please join us in celebrating his achievements and influences in 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 18, 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 4, at 8:30 a.m. A Traditional Irish Breakfast will follow beginning at approximately 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 charity is Early Intervention Program in memory of his Grandson, Eoghan Demsak as the 2017 beneficiary.

Please indicate your preference(s) for supporting these events by completing the appropriate enclosed form; and return it with your check payable to: S.C. St. Patrick’s Committee, Inc.

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