There’s Shriners in Canada to. And they rock.
One thing I noticed about the St. Patty’s day parade this year, no city vehicles that I could see. Though I will put a shout out to SFFD Jim Powers navigating the old skool fire truck down Phillips Avenue. But other then that, I didn’t see any.
It was nice for once. Besides saving tax payers money by not driving every snowplow and public works dump truck down the street, it allowed city employees to spend time with family on a holiday. And if you can’t get a decent raise at least you can spend some quality time.
