Residents are welcome at the Milford St. Patrick’s Day Parade grand marshal and Miss Emerald Isle dinner Feb. 21, at 6 p.m., at Aldario’s Restaurant.

Parade Chairman Marty Hardiman said people can contact him for reservations: 203-878-2865 or 203-415-6288 or mhardiman@sbcglobal.net.

The sit-down dinner choices are chicken francaise, stuffed sole, eggplant parmesan and a child’s dinner. The cost for the event is $45 per person, $15 for children.

The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is scheduled for Saturday, March 12, kicking off at 1 p.m. in downtown Milford.
