St Patrick's Day Party

St. Patrick's Day Party

On a Saturday in March, you can find a little bit of Ireland in the SMM Gym.  The annual St. Patrick’s Party has been a tradition for over 25 years.  It is a great event with plenty of dancing, eating and partying.  This party is a fundraiser for the Francis J. O’Hara Scholarship that is given to an 8th grader from SMM Parish who attends a neighboring Catholic grade school and is continuing their education at a Catholic High School.  It is awarded in Frankie’s memory who jumped into the frigid Lake Erie back in the 60’s to save his friend from drowning.  Frankie O’Hara embodies the Scripture:  “Greater love has no one than this that someone lay down his life for his friends”
