PARADE ANNOUNCEMENT

Given the guidelines issued by the provincial government earlier today in reaction to the perceived threat posed by the COVID-19 virus, the Soulanges Irish Society has decided to postpone its annual St. Patrick's Parade in Hudson, which was originally scheduled for Saturday, March 21.
The parade will be rescheduled to a later date, which will be determined as soon as possible.
Although this is an unfortunate consequence of the worldwide health crisis, the postponement will hopefully ensure better weather for what will be a grand community celebration.
The Irishman of the Year Gala, scheduled for this Saturday, March 14, honouring the 2020 Irishman of the Year honouring Ken Doran, will go ahead. The gathering will fall well within the crowd limits established by the provincial government. Although if anyone who has tickets but feels reticent to take in the evening, refunds will be made.
We will keep everyone updated on developments as the circumstances warrant.
