2020 PARADE RESCHEDULED
DUE TO CONCERNS OF THE SPREAD OF CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) FOLLOWING CAREFUL CONSIDERATION AND RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY REGARDING MASS GATHERINGS, THE SOUTH AMBOY ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARADE COMMITTEE HAS MADE THE DECISION TO RESCHEDULE THE 2020 PARADE.
THE SUCCESS OF THE PARADE HAS ATTRACTED BANDS AND MARCHERS FROM TOWNS THROUGHOUT NEW JERSEY AS WELL AS NEW YORK AND PHILADELPHIA WHO GATHER TOGETHER FOR 2-3 HOURS PRIOR TO MARCHING IN THE PARADE. WE DO NOT WANT TO PUT ANY OF OUR RESIDENTS OR PARTICIPANTS AT RISK.
THE COMMITTEE HAS RESCHEDULED THE PARADE AS FOLLOWS:
SATURDAY MAY 16, 2020 – KICKOFF AT 1 PM
WE REQUEST ALL PARTICIPANTS RE-REGISTER FOR THE PARADE IF YOU CAN JOIN US ON THE NEW DATE.
THE PARADE COMMITTEE WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO HONOR AND INVITE OUR VETERANS ORGANIZATIONS AS WE HONOR THEIR SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN MAY!
THANK YOU. THE SOUTH AMBOY PARADE COMMITTEE
Goodbye to a Great Friend
The South Amboy Parade Committee sadly announces the passing of our past co-chairman Ron Sturgis. Ron was a friend to all and through his leadership and hard work, our parade has become bigger and better. Ron will be greatly missed by all, but we take comfort in knowing he is smiling down upon the City today and organizing heavens parade.
Today, we dedicate the 43rd South Amboy St. Patrick’s Day Parade in his honor.
The South Amboy Parade Committee proudly announces the 2020 Parade Honorees:
Grand Marshal - Tim and Karen Walczak Deputy Grand Marshal - Larry Parsons Honorary Grand Marshal - Dennis Kelly Special Honored Guests - Karen Robson & Mary Szaro
Congratulations to all our 2020 St. Patrick's Day Parade Honorees.
Come out on SUNDAY, MARCH 15 2020 to celebrate these worthy individuals!!
A message from our Chairman...
HERE WE GO AGAIN!
I would first like to thank Cathy Schwartz, my Co-Chairperson for the last few years. Cathy will always be part of our Parade Family and we will MISS YOU!! Cathy is a VERY SPECIAL person.
I would like to welcome my Best Friend, who is now the Co-Chairman, Jay Elliot. You folks think I am 24 / 7, wait till you see Jay in action. If there is one thing with Jay, you can always depend on him fixing my screw-ups. He is really a GREAT GUY and we are PROUD that he is part of this parade.
If I learned 1 thing last year, it is that I am surrounded by a very dedicated and talented Committee. They work GREAT as a team and need no one to hold their hand. No task is too tough for this great group. By the way, you DO NOT want to party with this group; they can out party anyone.They are wanted in 3 States by bartenders.
Lastly, I would like to thank our great city in again cooperating to make this the GREATEST parade yet. If you don’t know, South Amboy is the greatest little city in the land!!
See you at the PARADE!!
