As part of the festivities, a scholarship was awarded to one 7th grader.
St. Patrick's School in Chatham Borough celebrated the feast day of their patron Thursday with a series of activities for students, parents and teachers.

William "Willie" Quinn, a member of the Rory O'Moore Band, knew trouble was brewing in the sky last year as the annual Morris County St. Patrick's Day Parade was about to begin marching at exactly noon, as it does every year. Quinn, who is this year's Grand Marshal for the event, said it would be an absolutely last minute decision to cancel the parade. "I was lined up with my band when we got called into the Town Hall and found out at that stage they were going to cancel," he said in his noticeable Irish accent. "By the time I had made it back out to the band, they had marched halfway up the street. "We knew we could march in the rain," Quinn said. "But, the wind was too severe that it caused a public safety issue." With partly cloudy …
