A Great Day for a Parade

As always, the men of Division 32 made an impressive showing at the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade in downtown Pittsburgh. Despite frigid temperatures, we carried the county flags of Ireland proudly. Division 32 was the runner-up recipient of The Robert W. Kennedy Award (Best Marching Irish Men).
