“Volunteering has always been a priority for the McGrath family and I consider myself privileged to serve the Bronxville and Eastchester communities in areas of health care,
academics, business growth, church activities and athletics. " said McGrath. “As
a lifelong resident of Bronxville, being Grand Marshal in the Eastchester St.

contributions of Irish Americans to our community.”
