Due to rising health concerns over the COVID-19 virus, Greater Palatine Area Democrats will not be participating in Palatine's St. Patrick's Day Parade this Saturday, March 14. The Parade also included a donation drive for Journeys the Road Home nonprofit. Our decision to pull out of the parade follows the news that Chicago, Naperville, and St. Charles all canceled their St. Patrick's Day parades for this weekend.
Instead, we urge our volunteers to help local candidates with Get Out the Vote activities. We also urge our volunteers to donate new cleaning supplies (bleach, buckets, sponges, etc.) to Journeys, located at 1140 E. Northwest Hwy, Palatine. We look forward to marching in the St. Pat's Parade next year.
We hope everyone maintains good health practices during this time and stays healthy. And, of course, the Primary Election is March 17, so don't forget to vote!
