Well to all of you that bought those gun tickets last Fall to support the Youngsville Marching Eagles trip to Dublin Ireland to march in their St Patrick's Day parade the time has come, the bags are packed and on Thursday morning at 6 AM my wife, daughter (clarinet) and the entire Youngsville Marching Eagle band and support will be heading off to Dublin Ireland!!!
They will March in the St. Patrick's Day parade in Dublin which is viewed by 500,000 and will be available to view on the internet ( I hope to get the link to share here) , will perform at a catholic Cathedral, and then represent the US of A in an international marching band competition. during their week's sstay.
Neither Mom or daughter have been on a plane before so they will certainly get their fill of that, not to mention 7 days in beautiful Ireland for two girls who have never been more than a car drive's distance out of PA.
I WANT TO THANK ALL OF YOU THAT BOUGHT THE TICKETS HERE, BY FAR HPA BOUGHT THE MOST out of any collective group!!!! I just wish a HPAer would of won the gun..., but thank you again for supporting this, something these kids and the adults chaperones will never forget while the represent our little NW PA town, all of PA and the USA.
The boys and I are going to miss them terribly as communication will be limited (by cost) to the interent, but we are so proud and excited ...I will try to hook it up so the parade can be viewed here or hsare pics I may get, luckily you won't be able to see me tear up ...LOL...THANKS HPA FOR THE SUPPORT!!!
, and may the luck of the Irish be yours.
