SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The countdown to Saint Patrick's Day celebrations in Savannah is underway.

This past weekend, we told you Michael Foran was named the Grand Marshal.

On Wednesday night, the Daughters of Ireland held its annual Grand Marshal's Wife Reception. Patricia Foran was presented a sash to wear during this Irish season.

She tells us her family is excited to carry on a long-running tradition.

"My dad was Marshal 40 years ago this year and Mike's father in 1983. We're very excited for Mike. Our seven children are. He's wanted this honor since he was a little boy,” said Foran.

Patricia tells us Mike has about 75 functions to attend in the next few weeks leading up to the parade.
