Friends of St. PatrickFounded in 1949 by businessmen John M. Sullivan and George Faulkner, the Friends of St. Patrick launched their first Miller Place - Rocky Point St. Patrick’s Day parade on March 11, 1950. Since that day, so many aspects of the parade have changed. The parade route, once a rustic two-lane road, is now a highly developed four-lane highway. The spectators, once numbering in the hundreds, are now in the tens of thousands. Yet the original goal of bringing our community together, as set by the cofounders so many years ago, still remains today.
The Friends of St. Patrick welcomes you to our website and encourages you to visit our Historypage for a more in depth look at the founders and the rich history of this organization. In addition, there are many resources available to you including parade attendee request forms, cocktail party invitations and donation information, queen and court applications, golf outing attendee and sponsorship forms.To send our organization an email visit the Contact Us page or check the Membership page to contact a specific member. Come on down to enjoy the festivities in March.
