2018 Grand Marshal
The people of Newtown have spoken and we are proud to announce the 2018 Grand Marshal for the 57th Annual Newtown Labor Day Parade, Ms. Eunice Laverty. A longtime owner of BAGEL DELIGHT, Ms. Laverty is known to many as a pleasant, kind, caring, welcoming, “Gem of a Woman” and so much more.
Ms. Laverty starts each day (Including Christmas) at 5:00 a.m., opening her shop and preparing for the morning rush of steady customers who will flock to the aromas of fresh bagels, homemade salads, and the best-tasting lox this side of the US.
A retired Social Worker, Eunice has been operating Bagel Delight for 22 years and is a supporter of multiple organizations and town events. Selfless and giving from her heart, she is a humble woman to anyone with whom she comes in contact. Aligning with Ms. Laverty’s commitment to Newtown, our theme for this years Parade will be “Serving the Community.” It is a fitting tribute to Ms. Laverty’s hard work and dedication. (Just ask the kids at the Newtown Middle School).
