St. Patricks Day Parade


Today was the First Annual St. Patricks Day Parade. It was put together by Jim Donovan in memory of his father Thomas G. Donovan who recently passed away.

The forecast called for heavy rains and increasing winds but despite that forecast a hundred or so people came down to march in the parade to march down Gerritsen Avenue. The weather was so bad everyone was drenched, hats were blowing away, flags were like parachutes blowing the flag bearers in every which direction. Everyone gathered after at the Hibernians where there was a good spread of Corned Beef, Cabbage, and Desserts.


The parade this year had to be held this year on the sidewalk only because the city is not issuing any new permits for parades and existing parades have to be cut by 25%. However, the 61st Precinct was kind enough to cooperate with the parade organizers to allow them to march on the sidewalk. They were also kind enough to provide an escort and assist in street crossings (maybe to make sure the parade didn’t stray onto the street) .

Annual Pagans/Women’s Charity Softball Game


The Annual Timmy “Tub” Girardot Pagans /Women’s Softball Game is a neighborhood tradition in Gerritsen Beach, Brooklyn for good reason. The game raises money for the American Cancer Society. Each year the proceeds are brought to the Prospect Park Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk by a group of Gerritsen Beach residents registered as Team Hope. Team Hope is the only non-commercial group on the American Cancer Society’s list of top ten Brooklyn fundraisers. The success is an example of how one small Brooklyn Community can make a difference in the fight against breast cancer.

This years event was held on Saturday October 3rd and although the day threatened rain a good crowd showed up. Team Hope honored Julia Dash, who is a 10 year breast cancer survivor. Team Hope presented her with 10 roses and a 10 year survivor sweatshirt.

She gave a touching speech. (Apologies for dropping the camera)

Although the event was eventually rained out, im sure everyone had fun.
