COMMODORE BARRY CELEBRATION ON STATEN ISLAND
On Tuesday, 19 SEP 17, at 11:30 AM, members of the Commodore Barry Club paraded to Staten Island’s Commodore Barry Borough Hall for a festive celebration of Commodore Barry’s contributions to our country. Commodore Barry Day is 13 SEP in New York State.
John Barry immigrated to America as a cabin boy. His excellent seafaring skills quickly raised him to the rank of captain. When the Revolutionary War broke out, he vigorously supported his new country by leading and developing the American Navy. He saw many sea battles and was very feared by the British.
Renee Sarno greeted Mary Nolan and presented her with a Proclamation from Borough President James Oddo. John Houlihan led the members in singing the Irish and American national anthems. Tom Alverson of the Clan Eireann played the pipes. Staten Island District Attorney Michael McMahon dropped by. President Mary Nolan praised Commodore Barry’s contributions to our country. The Club placed a wreath at the plaque to Commodore Barry outside of Borough Hall.
