ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARADE

The annual World’s Smallest St. Patrick’s Day Parade will be held on Thursday, March 17, at Noon.  Did you know that Lucy Klein, Green Hill’s previous church secretary, is the one who got the whole thing going back in 1993?  After relocating to Alabama from New York, she was distressed to see that the town didn’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  So, she went to Kathy Souer, the head of the Chamber of Commerce.  The two of them decided since Enterprise is a small town it should host the World’s Smallest Parade.  Kathy, who is of Irish decent, was the very first marcher.  Lucy, who had to be out of town that day, was the Grand Marshal in absentia.  She and Jim sent a telegram from their hotel in Chicago wishing everyone in Enterprise a very happy St. Patrick’s Day.
