2012 St. Paddy's grand marshals announced
Erin Prairie natives Betty Mitchell and her sons, Terry and Jim, have been named the 2012 St. Patrick's Day Parade grand marshals.
"We were quite surprised and kind of honored," Jim said of the reaction to the announcement.
Terry said St. Patrick's Day is a long-awaited holiday in his family.
"A lot of preparation goes into it and we start celebrating a week before to build up to it," he said.
This year will be no exception.
