Nearby: Rushville's 16th annual St. Patrick's Day celebration set for Saturday

(Continued)

Pavey’s Grocery and Campbell Bros. Auto will sponsor the “Paddy Wagon” once again. Al Cohee will provide two “Paddy Wagons” to transport attendees to and from the event. His number for this event is 765-561-3680.

McCain is optimistic for the weekend report.

“The weather is looking nice we seem to have sold a lot of tickets and shirts,” McCain stated. “I anticipate this year will be a great success. The courthouse clocks are green. The mayors flying a green city of Rushville flag at City Hall. What could go wrong?”

Anyone wishing to participate may call organizers, Brian Sheehan (561-5193), John McCane (932-3905) or Dan Shanahan (938-1559). Anyone not able to make the event, but wishing to make a donation should contact any of the organizers, and they will make arrangements to collect your donation.
