-- It's far away on the calendar, but the people behind the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade in Lawrence are hard at work in raising money, and they've just announced the 2018 recipients.
Kay Traver serves as Chair of this year's Lawrence St. Patrick's Day Parade board. Each year through the parade and a host of unique events (i.e. Irish Road Bowling), the group raises dollars to go toward youth organizations and initiatives in Douglas County. Last year's parade efforts raised $75,000, which was divided into three donations to local organizations (Douglas County CASA, Big Brothers Big Sisters Douglas County, The Sunrise Project).
The group has just announced the recipients for 2018, and shared the news with KLWN on this podcast:
