Dear Friends of the Rumson St. Patrick’s Day Parade,
Today we are writing to thank you for your generous support of the Rumson St. Patrick’s Day Parade and our mission to host a safe, fun-filled family-focused parade and share the cultural contributions of the Irish-American community to the USA. This year marks a fundraising milestone: in collaboration with you we have raised more than $200,000 for community organizations throughout the Peninsula and beyond.
Unfortunately, in light of the continued health pandemic, the Rumson St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee, in conjunction with Rumson Town Council and health department, has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
However, the need for support continues, and the work our 2021 beneficiary Shore House NJ does for mental health and well-being is even more critical during this challenging time.
Although we cannot gather to celebrate together, we are grateful for your support in helping the Parade achieve this significant milestone and to continue to fund the important services Shore House NJ and local organizations in the Rumson area provide to our community.
On behalf of the Parade Board of Trustees, we urge you all to stay safe, and we look forward to celebrating together with you at the 2022 Parade.
Jamie McManus on behalf of the Board of Trustees
