“The best part about volunteering for the Rumson St. Patrick’s Day Parade is that you’re in the midst of so much spirit and enthusiasm, said Jan O’Reilly, a parade board member who is volunteer chair. “Volunteer roles are still open for parade marshals, unit escorts, volunteer recruiters and more. The event brings together people from all walks of life to celebrate the ancient St. Patrick’s Day parade tradition. I look forward to recruiting new volunteers again this year and enjoying all of the festivities surrounding the big day!”
Brig. Gen. Peter M. Dawkins, USA (Ret.) will serve as grand marshal. JoAnn Pileggi, reporter for Fox 5 and My9 News, will again be the master of ceremonies.
