Marguerite and Jim Ellis proudly display an O'Daniels Clan banner in a St. Patrick's Day Parade Saturday in downtown Sedalia. The O'Daniels come from his mother's side, Jim Ellis said. The parade was sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2591 Ladies Auxiliary. The auxiliary hosted an Irish stew and chili luncheon and an auction after the parade.
Shaylen Denny's sunny smile matched the pleasant weather that graced the parade. The Lincoln 6-year-old cycled the parade route up South Ohio Avenue with her cousins.
Although not Irish, Jack and Sharon Doll, of Sedalia, arrived bedecked in green to watch the parade. “We love to clown around,” Jack Doll said.
