Coming May 21: St. Patrick School Spring Festival

Coming May 21: St. Patrick School Spring Festival

Saint Patrick Cathedral School will hold its second annual Spring Festival from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on this Saturday May 21 in memory of Andrew Cannon. Proceeds from the event will be dedicated to the scholarship fund in his name and to benefit the school. 

The Spring Festival will be held in the Cathedral parking lot and feature fun activities.

It will feature crafts and vendors, food trucks, ice cream, DJ Mike Herm, the Norwich Police Department K-9 Unit, a bake sale, a basket raffle, 50/50, face painting and more. 

Andrew Cannon worked for 25 years as the Chief of Probation for the State of Connecticut and volunteered for more than 30 years with the Poquetanuck Fire Department. 

After retiring from the state in 2010, he continued to work in the community in various positions including at Home Depot in Lisbon, driving a school bus in town and working in several retail stores. 

Andy dedicated his after-work hours volunteering at Saint Patrick Cathedral School in Norwich, from which his two girls, Megan and Molly, graduated. 

He was president of the Home and School Association, volunteered as athletic director for three years, coached basketball, chaired several annual auctions, coordinated spaghetti dinners and was a member of the school’s Board of Trustees. 

He was also secretary on the Board of Stewards for the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, one of his many roles as a member. 

Andy genuinely loved St. Patrick School and enjoyed being around people. That love resonated with everyone around him, so much so that people gravitated toward him to do whatever they could to help. If he asked you to do something, he was one of those people you did not want to say no to.
