'Twas sure a grand night at Hudson's Whitlock Golf and Country Club on Saturday, March 4, when radio personality, Ted Bird, Grand Marshal for the town's upcoming St. Patrick's Day Parade, was roasted and toasted before some 180 guests by his close friends and fellow media folk while enjoying the club's famous Italian buffet dinner.

Missing from pic is committee member Frank Hicks who was there but was taking care of business elsewhere in the club.
Helping to roast Bird were CHOM FM morning man Terry Dimonte, radio host in Ottawa Peter Marier, and CTV news, sports and radio man Paul Graif.
