On Thursday, March 16, 2017, members of the Irish community will gather to honor our military, past and present at the Sergeant William Jasper Memorial Ceremony at 5 p.m.

The annual ceremony takes place the day before the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Madison Square, where a monument honors Jasper and the men in the Irish jasper greens. Jasper was a Revolutionary War hero whose parents came to the colonies from Ireland.
