A note from Terri Kline, Parade Coordinator
"I'll Be Home for Christmas" The song was made popular by Bing Cosby in 1943, in a time when many were away from their families serving in World War II.
This is a time to remember those serving in our military around the world, some int he loving arms of a small portion of their family but some whose only family this season is the company of other military members.
We thank each and every one of them for the freedom to celebrate.
Thank you to the parade judges, Jack and Linda Hubby and Terri Kline.

Dr. and Caroline Windsor, Windsor Furniture, G & L Liquors, Rick's Tire and Shelter Insurance Agency, Peggy Richwine
