Three Mile Island Energizes St. Patrick’s Day Parade Crowd to ‘Go Clean, Go Green, Go Nuclear’

 

Glistening bubbles floated out of two canvass cooling towers as hundreds of smiling faces lit up as they witnessed the Three Mile Island float rolling down Harrisburg on a crisp Sunday afternoon. More than 70 employees from TMI donned green-and-white shirts that read, "Go Clean, Go Green, Go Nuclear", for the annual St. Patrick's Day parade in the Capital City on March 18.

TMI's first-ever appearance in the parade proved to make a statement. Two dozen waving children were among the luscious green plants, vibrant balloons, and impressive cooling towers nestled on a 20-foot long float. With an atmosphere that was festive and fun, TMI employees handed out trinkets, candy, and information cards that touted the benefits of nuclear energy.

The sight attracted media cameras and cell phone lenses alike with people eager to capture this buzzworthy moment. Thousands in the crowd cheered the impressive showing from their local source of carbon-free power. Employees engaged individuals with handshakes and quick conversations about community outreach.

Following the 30-minute route, TMI gathered as a family at a downtown pub to share grub and a pint over this new experience. As the Irish proverb once penned; "There are big ships and small ships and ships that sail the sea. But, the best ships are friendships and may that always be!"
