WASHINGTON, D.C. -- When it competed in the annual St. Patrick’s Parade of Washington, D.C., last year, The Bahamas Urban Renewal Music Masters Youth Band was so impressive that it was voted BEST IN PARADE. The acclaimed Bahamian youth band did not return to D.C. for a repeat performance in 46th annual St. Patrick’s Parade, held on Sunday, March 12, 2017, so Mr. Bob Monagan, Chairman of the St. Patrick’s Parade of Washington, D.C., paid a courtesy call on His Excellency Dr. Eugene Newry, Bahamas Ambassador to the United States, at The Bahamas Embassy, 2220 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W., on Monday, March 13, and presented him with the BEST IN PARDE trophy won by The Bahamas Urban Renewal Music Masters Youth Band. Mr. Monagan was accompanied by his daughter, Miss Colleen Monagan.
