The lads and ladies of Montauk Friends of Erin gave parade grand marshal Kathleen Keller a big tip of their hats on Sunday as she led their 56th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
Not only has Keller has served as the group’s secretary, as a member of their ladies auxiliary, and as an organizer of the parade, but she followed in a Keller family tradition as her father and brother previously served as grand marshals of the parade. The crowd of Irish and Irish-for-the-day cheered Keller as she kicked off the line of march, which included floats, antique fire trucks, emergency responders, and local dignitaries.
