ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARADE
Today I received a message from Club Treasurer, Lori Finucane. The message read, in part, “I have the check”. Therefore, I now have the pleasure to formally announce that the Northern California Irish Wolfhound Club won First Place and received a generous check in the amount of $200.00 as Best Irish Unit Other in the 172 nd St. Patrick’s Day parade.
Thanks go to everyone who, despite the horrible weather, came to San Francisco in support of our club. Thanks also go to the United Irish Societies of San Francisco for continuing to invite our club’s participation in this great annual event and giving us the opportunity to share our magnificent Wolfhounds with so many people. It doesn’t take very many Irish Wolfhounds to make a VERY BIG impression.
I hope to see you next year at the 173 rd running of the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade!
The Magnificent Five
by Carol Gabriel
Only 5 Wolfhounds this year, but they made a HUGE impression!! Jack, Banshee, Tanner, O’Malley, and Fiona walked with their proud families and received applause all along the Parade Route. If we had a Dollar for every picture taken, we could all retire in style.
We met some very important people, especially the Chief of the Irish Police. He was visiting from Ireland and was so anxious to have his buddies take pictures of him with Banshee and Tanner. Love hearing their Irish accent.
The Captain of San Francisco’s Fire Department. She is posing with Banshee. Then, the Police Lieutenant with Tanner.
Our Hounds were Celebrities !! They deserve ANOTHER First Place Award !!!
The lure courses on March 4 and 5 were a huge success. BOB in Irish Wolfhounds both days was Aggie – loved by Kevin and Lynn Lawrence. Congratulations!
