St. Patrick’s Day parade is Sunday
James E. Rooney, president of AMTV and son of Pittsburgh Steeler Chairman Dan Rooney, is grand marshal of the 35th annual Mahoning Valley St. Patrick’s Day Parade at 1 p.m. Sunday. The parade theme is “Shamrocks of Steel,” in part to honor the Rooney family but also to recognize the Mahoning Valley’s steelmaking history, said Robb Kale, parade treasurer.
The parade will proceed north on Market Street from McClurg Road to Southwoods Avenue, with the reviewing stand in front of Johnny’s Restaurant, 8000 Market St. Glenwood Avenue and Southern Boulevard will be the detour routes while Market is closed for the parade.
Youngstown Board of Education meets in executive session at 5 p.m. today at 20 W. Wood St. The board will discuss the evaluation of the superintendent and the interview of the treasurer candidate.
