BUFFALO, NY - A proud "Irish Lassie" will be in the leading role at this year's St. Patrick's Day Parade in Buffalo. Denice Morrison of Darien Center has been selected as the Grand Marshall for this year's procession down Delaware Avenue. The parade is scheduled for Sunday, March 15.
Morrison has served for the past 15 years as a division marshal in the parade and as part of the executive committee of the United Irish American Association which runs it.
She'll be joined by her husband, John, who was grand marshal back in 2007, and other family members as deputy marshals, for the parade.
This is the 75th anniversary of the parade.
