Our committee chose to name this years scholarship fund after one of its coordinators who passed away this year Katherine M. Beale. Katherine was a long time coordinator and organizer with the Dutchess County St. Patrick's Parade Committee. Her hard work and dedication will be forever missed. Anyone who knew Kathy will agree that she deserves this recognition. The committee received a generous outpouring of donations from friends and family of Kathy. We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of everyone who was able to contribute. Kathy's memory will live on with the help of supportive members like you. Members who take pride in our community are cherished by all. Her memory will live on each and every year. 2021 Scholarship Winners

This the 19th year the committee has awarded this scholarship. This past year we faced overwhelming challenges. The parade committee had to think outside the box. Happily we prevailed. Our virtual parade was viewed by many on cable TV and by 6,000 plus viewers on our Facebook page which afforded us the ability to achieve our goal. We kept our tradition uninterrupted and the selected students will never forget your generosity.
The Dutchess County St. Patrick's Parade Committee wishes to say Thank You for your continued support. We are always looking for community minded people to join the committee or volunteers to help on parade day.
