Thanks for support with parade
October 3, 2008 · Updated 1:25 AM
I would like to thank everyone who lives along Morrison Street
and Stewart Avenue for again accommodating the parade route. I truly
appreciate letting me set up the parade route in front of your homes, and to the
Tolt Congregational Church for allowing us to use your side yard for the
parade registration and sign-in along with the Carnation Library for letting us
use your parking lot for the holding area for the kiddie parade.
Thank you to the City of Carnation and the Police Department for
all your assistance.
A special thank you to my parade announcers Jack Ballard and
Jackie Perrigoue, my parade judges Dan Pflugrath, Riverview school
board member, Wesley Larson, native and longtime resident of Carnation
and Louise Miller, Representative of our district, and to all my volunteers
on the parade route and at sign-in. You were all great. Also thank you
Stacey Stoutt, a great friend, for helping stage the parade route, my son Joshuah
and his friend Paul Diediker for getting up a 6a.m. to steak the parade route.
Most of all I would like to thank the 4th of July Committee,
Steve Collins, Steve, Doreen Norton, Kathy Castello and Sally Kennelly
and Paulette Quiroga-Jacklin. It was great working with all of you again this
year. This was a great 4th of July. I didn't think we could out do ourselves
from last year but I think we did.
I hope everyone had a Great 4th and a safe one! See you again
Chair of the Great Carnation 4th of July Parade
