Some fun facts...

In 2015 I was chosen as Grand Marshal of the Philadelphia St. Patrick's Day Parade and what an honor. I am one of only three other woman ever chosen since 1952. I believe I was asked since I am the mother of nine children and the theme of the parade was "St. Patrick, Bless, Strengthen and Pray for our Families" and also the same year that Pope Francis will visit our fair city with the World Meeting of Families.
