St. Patrick's Day Parade and Royal Oak Democrats

The Democratic Party and the Irish have a long, intertwined history in the United States. Let's keep the relationship alive by marching in the Royal Oak St. Patrick's Day Parade this year.

Since we are a movement that sings we will be singing "Rising of the Moon," an Irish folk song that is very easy to sing and learn. We will start rehearsing the song at 9am. You've probably heard the melody: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKFCQ-Hhh2E. We'll bring a print-out of the lyrics.

Singing is optional, you are welcome to just come and walk with the group.

The parade leaves the RO Middle School promptly at 10am. Give yourself a half-hour to park and find our group in the RO Middle School parking lot, or get there by 9am to help us get the song together:
