The Chicopee St. Patrick’s Parade Committee crowned their 2017 Colleen and Court at the annual coronation ball tonight.
The event was attended by over 300 parents, family, friends, community leaders, and members of the Parade Committee.
The field of contestants was narrowed from 22 down to five with each of the five finalists answering the question “Name one female figure, dead or alive, that you find inspirational. If you had the opportunity to have lunch with her, what would you hope to discuss?” The finalists are listed below, along with their age and the school to which they attend.
