Letter: Thanking those who made annual event a big success


Another incredible St. Patrick’s Day parade and pub crawl was pulled off without a hitch, thanks to such an eclectic group of volunteers from on and off the island.

Thank you, to all of the participants who came out to enjoy the festivities and show their support for all the illustrious history that makes Whidbey Island so grand.

We at the Irish Wildlife Society were so privileged and excited to be able to make this year’s pub crawl such a success; it was one for the books and one which Kraken Tours was thankful to be a part of.

The Kraken Leprechauns made it to quite a few of the locations on the pub crawl and hoping next year to do it in reverse so that we can continually promote all of our fabulous establishments in this unique town we call home.

Votes are currently being tallied for this year’s winner of the Grand Potato, with presentation to follow soon.

Thank you to Teresa Besaw for the help in creating such incredible flyers for the pub crawl.

Thank you to Abbie Martin of Edward Jones — Jeff Pleet, for her tireless effort and consistent help in every aspect of the parade and pub crawl, and for helping a busy captain decorate the bus. Thank you to Nick Ricci of Windermere for being a fellow emcee for the night and for all the help keeping us on pub crawl time lines.

Until next time, lads and lasses, till the wheels come off. Erin go bragh!
