Some great general once said that an army marches on its stomach.

The same might be said for a parade.  All that marching works up a powerful hunger. And viewing, too, for that matter.

So you might want to fuel up for Saturday’s Morris County St. Patrick’s Parade with snacks from the Woman’s Club of Morristown.

The ladies will be selling light refreshments at 51 South St, with proceeds going to Project Gratitude, a gift program for veterans.  Read on for full details from the club:

MORRISTOWN, NJ, March 12, 2014 – The Evening Social Services Department of the Woman’s Club of Morristown will be selling light refreshments at the Morris County St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday, March 15, beginning at 8 a.m. Club members will be set up in front of the clubhouse, the historic Dr. Lewis Condict House, at 51 South Street in Morristown. Available will be coffee, hot cocoa, hot tea, bottled water, bagels, cookies, and soda bread. And for those who want to wear a little more o’ the green, there will also be Irish-themed trinkets for sale. All proceeds go to Project Gratitude to support our veterans.

 Project Gratitude honors and thanks members of the United States Armed Forces for their service. The Woman’s Club of Morristown delivers gift bags throughout the year to the veterans on the Women’s Treatment Unit and male veterans on the PTSD unit at the Lyons, NJ, campus of the VA New Jersey Health Care System. The gift bags include toiletries, puzzle books, and other necessities for the service members.

The Woman’s Club of Morristown, founded in 1910, is a group of more than 100 women dedicated to the service of their community. The Club is a non-profit, non-political, non-sectarian organization whose purpose is to promote improvements within its community, to offer civic, cultural, and educational activities, and to preserve the historic Dr. Lewis Condict House, its headquarters. The Club works closely with the NJ State Federation of Women’s Clubs and the General Federation of Women’s Clubs.
