The Clock is Green....The Clock is Green!!!!

Sorry for the delay everyone but we’ve had some technical difficulties over the last few days and couldn’t get the show to upload. That being said……WE HAVE DONE IT!!!! Last night a majority of the City Council voted to honor the memory of our ancestors and light the clock tower on public square green (Click here for the Press Release) for the St Patrick’s Day season.

It’s a historic day and generations from now will look back on this and thank all of you for showing such strong support. The North Country never shies away from supporting a great cause and this one is just that! We especially would like to thank those on members of City Council that voiced their support on this. Without them this wouldn’t be a reality. We would also like to thank all those in the media that saw this for what it is….a tribute to a strong and vibrant North Country Community. Thank you and we hope you enjoy the show!

The North Country Will Go Green!!!!

To list all Irish Americans that have made public service their passion would take a lifetime. There are a few in recent history that truly stand out. Most notably would be former Mayors of Watertown, Joe Butler and Karl Burns these are two men, one living and one since passed, that understood the meaning of community. You’d also be remiss if you didn’t mention Alex Duffy in that same breath. All you need to is look at the many beautiful buildings that adorn our neighborhoods and Alex Duffy’s craftsmanship can be seen in many. These great man and so many countless Irish Americans understood that in order to have a healthy North Country community you need to be actively involved in a community.

In saying that, we at the festival take great pleasure in announcing that the Clock Tower at the 1st Baptist Church in Public Square will be illuminated Green in lead up to St. Patrick’s Day.

We light this clock tower in the name of those who have sacrificed for this great country. We hope that this light will also act as a call to public serve and community involvement. Ours is a wonderful place to call home and this St Patrick’s Day we ask you to remember those who have sacrificed to make this great Country the special place it is. God bless and thank you for your support in making this historic event a reality.
