Rocky Point / Miller Place, NY - February 9, 2017 - The Friends of St. Patrick, Inc. are proud to announce the Royal Court for the 67th annual Miller Place-Rocky Point St. Patrick’s Day Parade.The Queen is Jessica Wooley of Rocky Point, and the Ladies in Waiting are her sister, Michelle Wooley of Rocky Point, and AnnaMaria Jacobsen of Mt. Sinai.
Queen Jessica is among Royalty, in that her sister Samantha was the Queen last year, and her sister, Michelle, is a Lady in Waiting this year. Jessica is a student at Stony Brook University, seeking a Bachelor’s in Science, Business Management Degree while minoring in Marketing. She has already received her Associates Degree from Suffolk Community College, having majored in Business Administration, with a 3.8 GPA.
She has helped with the Rocky Point Fire Department “megabucks” fundraiser, and has been a staff member for the North Shore Public Ownership Association for the past five summers. She is very proud of her Irish heritage, not just because she likes corned beef and cabbage, but especially because of the reputation the Irish immigrants brought with them as being very hard workers.
Lady Michelle Wooley is of the same Royal blood as our present and immediate past Queens, Jessica and Samantha Wooley. Michelle is a student at Suffolk Community College, studying in the Veterinary Technician program. She is employed at the East End Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Center as a Veterinary Assistant. Being the true animal lover that she is, Michelle also will pet-sit locally so that pets can stay in their own home when their owners go away, as opposed to being boarded.
Michelle is very active in local volunteering and she intends on joining the Rocky Point Fire Department and becoming an EMT once she finishes in her current program. Michelle gets her Irish heritage from her father’s side of the family, and she is proud of the generous, hardworking people to whom she is related.
AnnaMaria Jacobsen is a high school student at Mt. Sinai High School, and after graduation, hopes to go to college and study musical theater. SUNY Cortland and other fine schools are her choices to get a springboard for a career in musical theater. Anna Marie has stated that she will work hard in musical theater in her last year of high school and all throughout college and she will be on Broadway one day.
As you may have guessed, AnnaMaria’s hobbies include singing, acting and dancing. She also likes making pottery and drawing. She volunteers at her local church on the First Holy Communion Committee and Vacation Bible School. At her high school, AnnaMaria formed a Women’s Choir, who spent time at Christmas caroling around the high school and local nursing homes.
The Queen and her Court will be crowned at the Friends of St. Patrick cocktail party on Sunday, March 5, 2017 at the East Wind Grand Ballroom. The coronation is the highlight of this dinner reception and should not be missed! Tickets are $40.00 and available in advance from McCarrick’s Dairy, the Hartlin Inn or the Law Office of James E. McElhone.
Queen Jessica and her Royal Court look forward to seeing you at their coronation on March 5, 2017, and will be waving to you from their Royal Float at the parade on March 12, 2017!
