Ok, we will all be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this weekend as well as on Tuesday, the actual St. Patrick’s Day. Some will celebrate St. Patrick’s weekend in Quincy’s parade tomorrow, some in The District’s Pub Crawl tomorrow night, and some in the Kelly’s Fun  Run for the Quincy YWCA on Sunday in Quincy.

Thanks Jim Ponsot and Dick McKinney

It was back in 2008 when Dick McKinney asked me if I would come to a meeting to help revive the Veteran's Day Parade in Quincy.
