MAHOPAC, N.Y. - The Northern-Westchester Putnam St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee has named Elizabeth “Liz” Flannery as the grand marshal for this year’s St. Patrick’s Day parade.
An installation dinner was held Feb. 7 to induct Flannery, a Yorktown resident, as the grand marshal. The 44th annual St. Patrick’s Day parade is slated for March 8 at 10 a.m. (rain or shine) in Mahopac.
Flannery has a passion for Irish history, music and traditions. She is an active member of the Irish American Social Club and has marched with the club in countless St. Patrick’s Day parades in Mahopac, New York City and Mt. Kisco. She has marched in these parades with not only her own children but with her grandchildren as well.
Flannery said she’s looking forward to marching down Route 6 with her family on parade day.
