Lynch at Bucks County St. Patrick's Day Parade
On Saturday, March 11, Tom Lynch, Founder of the Danaher Lynch Family Foundation and President of Conwell-Egan Catholic High School, served as the Grand Marshal in the 34th annual Bucks County St. Patrick's Day Parade.
After a three year hiatus, the parade returned and this year's theme was "Ireland, Land of Scholars and Saints." DLFF and CEC representatives marched alongside Lynch as the procession began on New Falls Road from Conwell-Egan Catholic High School and ended at Levittown American Ball Fields opposite Thornridge Plaza in Falls Township.
"Even though Tom Lynch has experienced success in so many areas of business, it will be his work and commitment to Catholic education in our local community that will be his legacy," State Rep. John Galloway said in a press release. "It is for that reason that we are proud to have him as the 2023 Grand Marshal."
Congratulations also to DLFF/CEC Scholars Maggie Murphy (CEC Class of ’25), and Julia Wade (CEC Class of ’25) for placing first and second runner up, respectively, in the Miss Irish of Bucks County Competition. To be eligible for Miss Irish of Bucks County, contestants had to be a student in a Bucks County High School. Contestants were asked to write a 500 word essay on what their Irish heritage means to them, with a cover page attached, as well as 30-45 second video explaining what it would mean to them being chosen as a representative. The final 3 representatives were announced on Monday, February 20, and invited to the Irish Ball where the placements were announced. Second place was awarded $350 and third place $200.
