Joliet area residents celebrate their Irish spirit
JOLIET – Lots of people post pictures of their children on Facebook, and Marianne Uthe of Manhattan is no exception.
But it was the photo of her son, Corey Uthe, 17, of Manhattan that made me remember a story I wrote several years ago, about a Joliet resident who dressed up as a leprechaun for charity.
If there’s two, I mused, there’s gotta be more.
So I asked on Facebook: “Does anyone in Will/Grundy counties have photos of themselves dressed as leprechauns? If I can get several, I’d like to run them in this Friday’s Herald-News. Please message me.”
And people responded. Happy St. Patrick’s Day, and enjoy!
