The St. Lucy Society kicked off their 97th Feast on Thursday night in honor of Santa Lucia, St. Lucy, Vergine e’ Martire – Protectress of Eyesight. This is the second year the feast has been held on the Thursday night before the St. Anthony’s Feast and it appeared to bring out a nice crowd to the festivities. After a blessing on Endicott Street by Fr. Joe of St. Leonard Church, a solemn procession was made by society members through the neighborhood streets with a marching band, flower girls and color guard.
