United Way of St. Clair County (UWSCC) will not be holding the annual St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast at Freighters Eatery & Taproom in Port Huron on March 17, 2020. In a March 11th press release, Dr. Annette Mercatante, Medical Health Officer of the St. Clair County Health Department, emphasized; “The Health Department is recommending event organizers, agencies and others to reevaluate hosting large events, meetings, or gatherings to help limit the spread of illness. The slower the virus is able to spread, the less impact and burden it will have on our community.” Therefore, “in consideration of public safety and the recommendation from the St. Clair County Health Department, we have decided not to host our annual St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast fundraiser that was planned for next Tuesday,” Doug Dolph, UWSCC Executive Director, explained.
