Broward’s bravest will bring their Irish charm to over 100 participants today, March 15, for MACtown’s St. Patrick’s Day party.
The Black Pearl Pipes & Drum Corps, founded several years ago by members of Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue, includes firefighters from all over South Florida who band together to promote and continue this fire service tradition. They perform in parades and events from here to Ireland.
Today’s performance at MACtown, the Miami Achievement Center for the Developmentally Disabled, will be part of the festivities that include the wearin’ o’ the green, Irish soda bread, Irish beer and Irish coffee (non-alcoholic, of course) and decorations fit for an Irishman! There will also be a pot o’ gold coin hunt and plenty of other shenanigans.
MACtown, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to furthering the independence of people with developmental and intellectual disabilities. The dedicated staff at MACtown strives to help their members work towards leading independent, meaningful and dignified lives. MACtown was chartered in 1962 by the state of Florida, and was founded by a handful of parents and concerned friends of the developmentally disabled community.
