We also acknowledge and appreciate all of our terrific volunteers,
without whom we would not have had such a festive event.
Special thanks to:
Community gardener, Ali Parrington and her family
for creating scarecrows that added a special touch to the parade.
The Bristol Myers Squibb employees who gave an extra helping hand.
Floats designed by local organizations evoked their mission and the event theme:
“Birds, Bats and Bugs… Oh, MY!”
The theme honors Nature’s small but mighty pollinators, whose work is essential to life itself.
