Friends of St. Patrick

Founded    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   History    page   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   donation   information ,   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.

Out of concern for our revelers and marchers, we feel obligated to postpone the 70th annual Miller Place-Rocky Point St. Patrick’s Day parade. We were given the attached notice from the Suffolk County Department of Health, and in our continuing spirit of cooperation with the local authorities, we will exercise an abundance of caution and not go forward on March 15, 2020. Statement from Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone: “Out of an abundance of caution as part of the County’s ongoing response to COVID-19, the Commissioner of the Suffolk County Department of Health Service has recommended that parades scheduled for March 14 or March 15 be postponed.” We want to thank all of our sponsors and participants for their continuing support of the parade.  While the Friends of St. Patrick are naturally disappointed to have to make this decision, it is the right decision. We know how important the event is to our community and the decision was not made lightly. We will be back bigger and better than ever at our next parade and will celebrate twice as much next time.
