Safety is an utmost concern for The Lions Club. Thanks also to our local media and newspaper for their help in providing the needed information so all know when the parade will be and where. Also, a thank you to the merchants along the route and the Chamber of Commerce for their understanding and aid.
This year we had four marching bands and next year we look for more than that. We have invited several other area bands to participate and hopefully they will be with us. It was an honor to have the band from Fort Gillem with us this year on stage before the parade as we saluted our own National Guard Bravo troops who will be deployed early in 2009. Our prayers are with them and their families.
Next year’s parade promises to be even better than this year’s as I have already heard what some folks have in ideas for their floats.
Thanks to all for your help and have a happy and prosperous New Year.
