Friends of St. Patrick Announces Grand Marshal of the 67th Annual Parade

The “Friends of St. Patrick” are pleased to announce, with great pride and pleasure that the committee has named longtime committee member  Andrew J. Streeff to be Grand Marshal of this year’s parade. Andrew J. Streeff is the product of parents whose roots come from County Kildare and Finland.  He first marched in the Miller Place-Rocky Point parade as a Cub Scout in 1971, and has been an avid supporter of the parade ever since.  Mr. Streeff joined the Friends of St. Patrick in 2001 and has put in many  hours over the years to help make our parade the success that it is. Mr. Streeff has been in the restaurant industry for 40 years, and for the last 20 years he’s been owner and chef of the Hartlin Inn in Sound Beach.  The Hartlin Inn is well known to our community, not only as a fine place to dine and meet friends, but as a staple in the community for supporting all local and scholastic organizations.  Drew is the proud father of Daneal O’Leary, who along with her husband, Dan O’Leary, have given him grandchildren Roary, Brennan, Connor and Molly. Mr. Streeff is marching in honor of his late business partner, Richie Hartig, who brought him into the Friends of St. Patrick in 2001.  Unfortunately, Mr. Hartig passed away before the honor of Grand Marshal was bestowed upon him, even though he was most certainly worthy. Mr. Hartig honorably served our nation in the U.S. Navy and went on to serve the citizens of Nassau County as a Detective in the Nassau County Police Department.  Upon retirement, Mr. Hartig served as Commodore of the Mt. Sinai Yacht Club.  Richie Hartig served as a mentor and an inspiration to so many young people over his lifetime. It is in the honor of Richie Hartig that Andrew J. Streeff accepts the honor of Grand Marshal of the 68th annual Miller Place-Rocky Point St. Patrick’s Day parade.   Please come and support our local parade!
