Parade Committee to Fund 2021 Beneficiary Shore House NJ and Local Organizations
Rumson, NJ – In light of the continued health pandemic the Rumson St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee, in conjunction with Rumson Town Council and health department, has cancelled the 2021 Rumson St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
“With an abundance of caution for the health and safety of the community, we cannot hold the parade, but the community still needs the services of our local organizations such as our 2021 beneficiary Shore House NJ. In fact, it’s even more critical that we help support mental health access during this critical time,” notes Jamie McManus, Parade Committee Member. “Although we cannot be together, we can celebrate a significant milestone. Over the past eight years the Parade raised more than $200,000 for local community organizations. We look forward to being able to celebrate together at the 2022 Parade.”
