changes after that, but nothing to affect your time or location to line up. I will be in touch with you a few times

added. CBS has requested that no one
contact them directly with anything to be added or read on air. It has to be on your TV Bio. We need to have a single stream of

On behalf of
the St. Patrickís Day Observance Association Board, thank you for your
cooperation. We know how hard it is to
put together the great groups you have and we really appreciate your efforts!!!
Please pray for good weather.
