Well here we are again another month, they say it is spring but there is still snow around – hopefully this weekend will provide some warmth to the spring. To those people who were able to find their way to the Grand Parade Party after the St.Patrick’s Day parade - Saint Brigid’s was a buzz of activity, with musicians, dancers, 50 shades of green and lots of fun and laughter. Thanks for coming out and making it a success. Thanks also to the many people who worked hard behind the scenes to make the parade and party possible. St.Patrick’s Day was Ottawa's coldest St. Patrick's Day ever! Despite the cold the St.Patrick’s Day luncheon was well attended, with food, music, Guinness and Irish coffee flowing. Justin Trudeau, Jim Watson, Mathieu Fleury and Carol Anne Meehan joined us for lunch. If you took photos/videos of either the Parade Party or the St.Patrick’s Day luncheon and would like to share them we would be glad to have them. (you can email them to ann@sbcottawa.ca ).
