T’was good day to be Irish, when PPh celebrated St. Patrick’s Day on March 15.  The band Philly Fun Times, made up of current and retired Mummers, played some old favorites while revelers did a jig or two.  Partiers kept up their strength snacking on Irish potatoes and sipping on a wee bit of brew.  The Philadelphia Protestant Home
