On March 17th the Denver St. Patrick’s Day Parade Turns 50. Looking forward to the landmark “Golden Jubilee,” the parade committee members looked inward to find a Grand Marshall who personifies the commitment and hard work of thousands of volunteers who work diligently each year to organize, promote, and host what has become the largest St. Patrick’s Day Parade West of the Mississippi.
According to the Denver St, Patrick’s Day Parade Committee President, Michael O’Neill, the entire committee was asked to give names of persons who we might honored as Grand Marshal. “The resounding theme we received was this year’s celebration is about the Committee and we need to have one of our own as the Grand Marshal. So, the Board of Directors decided to honor our longest serving committee member, Mr. Vinton Guy. Vinton has participated as a Committee member for the last forty-five years; he exemplifies volunteerism and is an inspiration to all Committee members who have followed in his steps. By bestowing this honor on Vinton today, we are also honoring and recognizing all Parade Committee Members, past and present, who have devoted countless hours volunteering time in shaping the Denver St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee into the highly regarded organization it is today.”
