Tom Makinney and his family will be marching in the Elmhurst St. Patrick's Day Parade on March 12th in what has become an annual family tradition for the Makinneys.

Tom and his family have walked in the local parade for as long as he can remember. The yearly event is a must do for his kids.

"Last year we almost did not walk in the parade," said Tom, "but once the parade kicked off and my kids saw it going by without them, it was instant tears. So we jumped into the parade and celebrated with our Elmhurst friends."

Tom and the Gracik Makinney Real Estate Group know that a thriving community like Elmhurst enjoys yearly traditions such as the parade. Tom and his family will not miss it for the world. Say heeeeelp if you see them passing out beads or candy.
