Friends of RIHA -
A big thanks for helping make the 6th Annual Robbinsville St. Patrick's Day Parade a success. Despite the early Spring chill yesterday, your dedication and participation culminated in another banner day for our community. For so many of you - and as Colin Duffy calls it - Robbinsville Parade 2.0, required an effort to juggle your schedule and make it to our streets yesterday. Thank you and congratulations on a job well done!
I am reminded that we witnessed so many of our friends, neighbors and new acquaintances pitch in to help pull off this event. Also, if not for the support of our Mayor Dave Fried, Chief Masseroni and the RPD, Business Administrator, Joy Tozzi and her staff including Dino Colarocco and the Public Works Department and Recreation Director, Joe Barker, we do not march through our community every year.
In addition, join me in recognizing the particular efforts of our Council President Ron Witt, the Robbinsville Economic Development Advisory Committee's Dan Schuberth,
Lifetree Community Church members and the so many that sacrificed and made time to support the parade.
Congratulations once again to the 2015 Grand Marshal, Chris Ciaccio and Sue Sullivan Tonry, our Irish Person of the Year. They have honored us by being the face of this year's parade, and we've never looked so good.
Lastly, and as we look towards our 7th Annual Robbinsville St. Patrick's Day Parade, I ask that after you've read this note you go to your phone calendar and enter the date - March 19, 2016. We will once again march on the streets of our wonderful community.
Until next March 19th, please be safe and keep an eye on our web site for additional details and this year's award winners.
