The South Boston Allied War Veterans Council (SBAWVC) has selected John Beatty as the Chief Marshal for the 2019 South Boston St. Patrick’s Day / Evacuation Day Parade, to be held on March 17, 2019. John currently serves as the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Military Task Force, which is housed within the Office of the Governor and serves to coordinate among the Commonwealth’s six military facilities to maximize their efficiency.
1901 was the very first celebration of Evacuation or St. Patrick’s Day Parade. It was on the 125th Anniversary, on the day General George Washington and the Continental Army forced the British to end the occupancy of Boston.
MAYOR OF SOUTHIE
The “Mayor of Southie” initiative has long been a tradition of the parade and provides a fun and unique way to give members of the South Boston community an opportunity to participate in the parade directly and be recognized for it, while working to help raise the funds necessary to hold the parade.
Since 1901, our Parade has only been possible by the generous contributions of friends, family, and community. We are self-supporting, and rely heavily on your help. Please donate what you can, and as always we greatly appreciate your support.
