It Was Pete’s Day
For Pete Hand, it was the ride of a lifetime. The president of the AOH Notre Dame Division and drum major for the division’s Irish Thunder Pipes & Drums has certainly marched down Fayette Street for the Conshohocken St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
But this was his first as grand marshal. He was joined on his journey by a few hundred of his nearest and dearest friends—pipe bands, high school bands, AOH and LAOH divisions, hordes of dancers … and one leprechaun.
