Irish Fest genealogy expert Barbara Scanlon sends along this note and photo, and a challenge:
"Laura Rauch has traveled from Afghanistan to enjoy the St. Patrick's day in Kansas City! Has anyone else traveled farther? She is here to celebrate her Irish heritage and have some real Kansas City steaks and some corned beef at the Scanlon's."
I guess my traveling from East 53rd Street doesn't quite match up. So glad you're here, Laura. And I guarantee we have a better St. Patrick's Day parade than anywhere in Zabol or Jowzjan does.
