Dear Friends of the Greater Bridgeport Saint Patrick’s Day Celebration Committee:
On Tuesday, March 17, 2015, the Greater Bridgeport Saint Patrick’s Day Celebration Committee will be hosting its 33rd Annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. We are honored to be led by our 2015 Grand Marshal, Ted Lovely of Trumbull. The marchers will travel through downtown Bridgeport, beginning at Harbor Yard up Broad Street to Fairfield Avenue and return to Harbor Yard via Main Street.
Our Souvenir Parade Journal will soon go into production and will be distributed on Tuesday, March 17, 2015, during our post-parade luncheon at the Bridgeport Holiday Inn. Our committee would appreciate your consideration of renewing or including your advertisement, tribute or memorial, in our journal.
For your convenience, we have uploaded the Souvenir Journal Insertion order which should be completed and submitted with your artwork and payment. The deadline for the ad is Monday, February 23, 2015. Complete instructions are on the form.
