Commander Billie J. Farrell, of the USS Constitution

On January 21, 2022, Commander Billie J Farrell became The USS Constitution’s 77th commanding officer, and first woman to serve as commanding officer in the ships 224 year history. Commander Farrell is a native of Paducah, Kentucky and is a 2004 graduate of the US Naval Academy. Over the years, Commander Farrell has had many Naval assignments including, USS Vella Gulf and USS San Jacinto. She then returned to the US Naval Academy as deputy director for professional development. From here, Commander Farrell was assigned to the Commander, Naval Surface Forces Atlantic, as the deputy. Most recently, she was executive officer aboard USS Vicksburg.

As of February 2021, Commander Farrell had received 2 Meritoriuos Service Medals, 4 Navy and Marine Corp Commendation Medals, and 3 Meritorious Unit Commendations!

The USS Constitution, also known as Old Ironsides, is the worlds oldest commissioned warship still afloat. This ship was built in Boston’s North End. It played a crucial role in the war of 1812, and defended sea lanes from 1797 until 1855. It was undefeated in battle!

Here’s a little known fact! This historic ship has ties to Cape Cod. Captain John
Percival of West Barnstable MA, was the only captain of the USS Constitution to circumnavigate the globe. The USS Constitution is now docked in Charlestown, MA.
We are so honored to have Commander Farrell leading our 2022 parade!

So Lets give Commander Billie J Farrell , her family and the ships crew, a GREAT BIG CAPE COD IRISH WELCOME on parade day, and congratulate her on this wonderful accomplishment as the first Woman Commander of the USS Constitution.

St. Patrick’s Parade in September

With the GREEN light from the Massachusetts reopening guidelines, we are excited to be moving forward with our 16th Annual Cape Cod St. Patrick’s Parade.

The parade will take place on Saturday September 18, 2021.

This year we have decided to forgo recognizing just person as our “Grand Marshall”. We are dedicating the parade to ALL of our ESSENTIAL workers as well as our first responders and front line workers who helped us get through the unprecedented times of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This AMAZING group of people went to work tirelessly, day after day, month after month, masked, gloved and at times in full body suits, not knowing what NEW challenges the day would bring. The list of essential workers includes (but not restricted to) the following:, grocery store workers,  USPS , delivery truck drivers, tradesmen and women, restaurant workers, teachers, nursing care facility personnel, all health care workers, all public works personnel, along with all Police, Firefighters, and all first responders.

We invite ALL of you to join us in the parade. You are welcome to travel the parade route in a “company ” vehicle, (decorated for our St. Patrick’s Day in September Celebration). If you prefer, you can walk with your fellow workers (Wearing your GREEN), and carry your banner to let us know who you are so we can ALL say a great big, IRISH THANK YOU !

This will be a GREAT day to celebrate the IRISH and all of these OUTSTANDING members of our Cape Cod Community!

So line the parade route on Sept 18, 2021, wear your green, put a “Shamrock” smile on your face, and get a chance to just say “THANK YOU!”

As always, there will be lots of excitement and plenty of surprises in store for you!
In an effort to give back to our community, all businesses and organizations who participated and supported us in the 2020 parade, are welcome to walk in the September parade, free of charge. It’s our way of saying THANK YOU!’
