Default St. Patrick's Day parade 3/18

There will b e a St. Patrick's Day parade on Monday put on by the residents with the help of POA. It is co-sponsored by the Rec Dept, but no notices in the DS or TV radio, so POA is asking all its members to let all their friends know.

It is 3:30 pm at Spanish Springs on Monday 3/18.

Two color maps of the squares, times and days, column of explanation.
Perhaps a complete read of the Daily Sun is necessary.

Complete read indicates the festivities start at 4:45 PM on Monday at Spanish Springs. Unfortunately, the parade starts at 3:30 PM. Do you think it is a typo???

I don't get the Daily Sun. I was just trying to help spread the word and remain neutral at the same time. Others have posted the exact email that was sent out, in which it says they were unable to get the DS or the radio to provide any publicity. Others on the forum have printed the whole email.

It could be that the DS finally agreed to some publicity, and the POA email was sent out before learning that.

I never saw anything in today's Daily Sun (Monday) about the parade at 3:30 today. Did I miss it in today's paper? I guess there is an Irish Resident parade today at Spanish Springs Square for those that care to watch a parade!

I saw the tables all set up at SS this morning. I just hope people don't go there 4 hrs. before and save seats like always. That's just wrong.

I called and spoke to the news editor of The Daily Sun and said, "How's come there was nothing in the paper about the residents St. Patrick's Day Parade and she said "Because it hasn't happened yet."

Probably need to start reading the Leesburg Daily Commercial as they did have a story about the parade in their paper today.

Great job everybody. Hardly a parking space to be found at 3pm...guess the word about the 3:30 start time got out just fine.

Today, at three different times, our radio station advertised The St. Patrick's Day Parade at Spanish Springs Town Square. Unfortunately, all three times they stated that the parade would start at 4:45 pm, not at 3:30, (which was the correct time). Stupidly, I fell for it, and doubted myself thinking it was at 3:30. My husband and I got there at 4:40, and the parade was over. Obviously they were trying to show that not many people were interested in the parade. Then what really got me angry, was a saw a women with a professional camcorder, taping a man, holding a mike. He was using all the people behind and around him, to make a video of the wonderful activities that The Villages offers. If they don't want us having parades, then why do they have the nerve to use those videos as PR to get people to move here? I had all to do to control myself from grabbing the mike and stating that it was all a lie. I love it here in The Villages, but hate that they're misleading people. Trish.
