Each  year in the Spring the local Clan na Gael honors the memory of   
Joseph McGarrity, Irish-American patriot and supporter of a United
Ireland by gathering at his grave at Holy Cross Cemetery. The 69th Pa
regularly joins the ceremony to provide a flag honor guard and fire
volleys. Once again on April 3rd 2016 on a windy but sunny day the 69th
sent representatives to the event.
