St. Patrick's Day Parade Tomorrow!

Scooterdude will be joining the South Boston Arts Association in marching as part of the South Boston tradition. The theme is “Green”, in both the Hibernian and Environmental senses of the word! Scooterdude will be demonstrating the advantages of Wind for recreation purposes! LOL but also joining us will also be MIT’s award-winning Solar-Powered car. It’s very exciting to have the “Eleanor” showcased before she leaves for Australia to compete in the Cross-Continent Solar Race
It’s a celebration now that has a global meaning and appeal.
T’ would make the Patron of the Emerald Isle proud indeed!

See you there!
