Just For Fun: Limmericks for Our Leaders

Writer Maureen Rossi pays tribute to the dignitaries who marched in Kings Parks first St. Patrick's Day Parade.

It's absolutely cooleo that Smithtown's Town Clerk Vinny Puleo was marching on this grand day.

Senator John Flanagan sure loves Kings Park and you can say that again.

Councilman Bob Creighton was the Heavy Weight  - without him and wife Gerry, there'd be no parade.

Councilman Tom McCarthy was all smiles in front of St. Joes - despite crowd control placing a orange cone on his toes. (Anne Carlin)

Assemblyan Mike Fitpatrick was there in a fine sweater from the other side - at six foot five, it was impossible for Mike to hide.

County Executive Steve Levy never let's KP down - he's often seen at our events about town.

Councilman Kevin Molloy - I'm sorry our path's didn't cross but as an Irishman and KP native, you're still the boss.

Smithtown's Tax Collector Deanna Variccho was on hand - fear not she was make no monetary demands.

Councilman Eddie Wehrheim was his gregorious self.  Greeting Kings Parkers one by one - our Eddie is always so much fun.

Cheers rang out when Highway Department Glenn Jorgenson went by - the word on the street is he's one  helluva guy.

The Babylon Town Supervisor stopped by - a grand fella name Steve Bellone.  In true KP spirit, we welcomed him  as if he were home.

There were a few judges Surrogate and Supreme Court -  Hon. Czygier and Baisley - Although titles could  be wrong, the piples were blowing and my red head full of song.

Our own Town Supervisor was being greeted by throngs who wanted to chat - with decades running Smithtown, he's still our cool cat.

All the politicians and dignitaries were out smiling and waving on this great Kings Park day -- in KP we're kean on politics, it's just our way.
