SYRACUSE The Tipperary Hill Neighborhood Association and the City of Syracuse will honor Bob and Julie Rudd at a St. Patrick's Day Ceremony at noon Friday, March 16, at Tipp Hill Memorial Park. The park is located at Milton and Tompkins Streets, at the green-over-red traffic light.
Bob and Julie Rudd have lived on Tipperary Hill for over 25 years. They have been active members of the Neighborhood Association and strong supporters of all of our endeavors. As owners of the Tipp Hill Café, they hosted meetings of the Shamrock Run Committee, opened their doors to runners training for the event and helped to sponsor the run.
The Rudd's closed their café recently and are actively searching for a new location on Tipperary Hill.
“That is a grand re-opening that everyone on Tipperary Hill will welcome,” said Tipperary Hill Neighborhood Association President Janice McKenna.
The ceremony will also feature bagpiper Dan Walsh, grandson of one of the Stonethrowers, Francis “Stubbs” Shortt. Members of the AOH will sing the Irish National Anthem and students from All Saints School will sing a couple of songs.
