December 1st, 2013 proved to be a great day for the Irwin Clan, as Clan Irwin Association members from Mid Atlantic and Tidewater joined forces to parade in this year’s Alexandria’s Christmas walk.
The units color guard expanded to include two Irwin Flourish standards, the National Colors, the Tartan flag, the flag of Scotland and an Irwin Badge flag. In addition four beautiful young ladies acted as banner bearers, CallieAnne in her Clan Irwin doggie kilt, and several young participants. As young Harry carried the Irwin Flourish flag, and nephews of Bill Irwin, Chad and Casey Essig carried the Badge flag and acted as honor guard to the banner bearers marched in the front line.
Several other teens and youth filled in the ranks.
Barb Edelman, Mid Atlantic Commissioner was pleased to see so many new younger participants in the field. “This is great,” Edelman stated, “having this young blood just makes everyone so excited.”
Bill Irwin who is in Public Affairs knows the value of kids and animals, “there is an old adage in the news and entertainment business…it comes down to kids and animals get all the attention.”
All this reporter can say is there were cameras clicking away, so CLAN IRWIN ASSOCIATION definitely got its’ fair share of media coverage.
