St. Patty's Day parade full of warmth


Thanks for a great parade. Congressman Rick Nolan danced a jig with parade-goers, Sen. Carrie Ruud stopped by and Rep. Joe Radinovich chatted with many people.

Lucky for us to be standing in front of the Echo Journal parade van where folks offered a warm car to seniors. What a “Minnesota Nice” gesture. Once we got moving, there was lots of warmth!

Thank you, Echo Journal.
