Friends of St. Patrick Announces 2014 Parade Queen and her Royal Court

The Friends of St. Patrick are delighted to announce the Queen and her Royal Court to represent our local communities at their 64th Annual Miller Place-Rocky Point St. Patrick’s Day Parade. 

The title of Parade Queen has been bestowed upon Kaitlyn Donovan and will be accompanied by Callie Brennan and Kristen Killackey, who have been chosen as Her Royal Court.

Miller Place resident Parade Queen Kaitlyn Victoria Donovan has deep roots in the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade, for it is a yearly life long tradition for her, her family, and friends to attend; while she had performed with the Clarkettes Twirling Team and presently marches with the Miller Place Fire Department.

Currently enrolled in general studies at Suffolk Community College; Kaitlyn’s quest in life lies in her artistic talents, abilities, and her exceptional energy. Nicknamed “the future Picasso” by her peers in high school she excelled at creating murals, displays, floats, drama scenery, and will paint just about anything, anywhere, anytime. Kaitlyn hopes to someday have a career as a digital artist.

Loving her tight knit community, she is a volunteer with the Miller Place Fire Department and loves being able to help in life saving and fundraising efforts and finds it extremely rewarding to give back to her hometown. 

Lady Callie Brennan of Stony Brook is a relative newcomer to the Miller Place area. After graduating Ward Melville High School and SUNY New Paltz as a business and art history major; Callie yearned to have her own business where a community had a gathering place to meet and greet on a regular basis. 

Against the advice of family and friends, she opened Crazy Beans in Miller Place less than two years ago where she serves a variety of coffees, teas, beverages, food, and always provides an outlet for local artists and musicians by providing space for their talents. Callie fully enjoys the new relationships within the community and its residents, and the interaction and mutual support among the local businesses.
Through having her own business she is not only to be able to serve her loyal customers, but also provide a forum to assist in local charities and fundraising efforts that occur throughout the year. Her dream has certainly come true. She hopes her against all odds persistence, positive attitude, and successful business endeavor will motivate others to follow their heart and pursue and accomplish their dreams.

Lifelong Middle Island resident Lady Kristin Killackey is very proud of her deep Irish heritage. A National Honor Society Graduate of Longwood High School, Kristin was a member of the cheerleading squad through her years and became co-captain in her senior year. 

It was through her cheerleading experience that her coach instilled in her as well as her teammates to not only be a cheerleader but to get involved and assist those in need in her community and beyond. Through all of her voluntary charitable efforts, Kristin knew how she wanted to spend the rest of her life; by helping others.

Currently enrolled at Molloy College, her charitable efforts have not ceased for she has done fundraising for St. Mary’s Children’s Hospital while maintaining her demanding study regimen. This coming May, Kristin will graduate Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and hopes to someday pursue a career as a pediatric critical care nurse.

The Friends of St. Patrick would like to extend an open invitation to the community at large to attend the crowning of the Parade Queen and her Royal Court at their Annual Fundraiser on Sunday March 9 at the elegant East Wind Caterers Ballroom in Wading River from 4 to 8 PM. And be sure to save the date to see the charm and personalities of Queen Kaitlyn and her Royal Court Callie and Kristin as they are escorted down the parade route at the 64th Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday, March 16 at 1PM.
