Congratulations to the Winners of the Brookside St. Patrick's Day Warm-Up Parade contests. Phillips "66" Service won the award for the Best Overall with a float that brilliantly displayed the theme of "Lucky 13." Complete with a salt shaker, snake-eyes die, a ladder and more displays of "luck" both good and bad. The Drill Team from Benjamin Banneker won for the Best Dance Team. The crowd delighted in their amazing talent and in sync movements as they marched through the crowds. The St. Andrews Episcopal Church won the award for Best Music. The heart stopping, very moving bagpipe melody rang through out Brookside as the bagpipers in their traditional dress uniforms delighted the crowds with music that made the day all the more special!
