On Sunday, March 16, PFCU stepped out armed with Irish flags and four leaf clovers for the 244th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Philadelphia. A presenting sponsor of the parade for the past eight years, PFCU celebrated the 2014 parade theme, “St. Patrick, Bless the Contributions of Irish Americans to Our Nation” with a float depicting the Irish American Museum and marchers dressed up as famous Irish-Americans.
More than 50 PFCU volunteers decked out in green, including James McAneney, President/CEO of PFCU and Joseph F. McHugh, Jr., Board Chairman, joined thousands of spectators for the walk down John F. Kennedy Boulevard toward the Philadelphia Art Museum to honor Philadelphia’s Irish heritage. Philadelphia has been celebrating the St. Patrick’s Day Parade for 244 years, making it the second oldest parade in the county.
If you missed the parade in action last weekend, an encore of the festive event will air on CWPhilly on Sunday, March 16 from 4 – 7 p.m., followed by a second encore on Monday, March 17 from 9 a.m. – Noon on CBS3.
