To the Times of Ti:
I know there is still snow on the ground and more winter to come, but it really is time to think summer. I am again chairing the 4th of July Parade and Festivities and once again, asking for donations to come in early so we can secure all the bands, and other ongoing activities which make our town's celebration so much fun!
Everyone was so wonderful last year and the money just started coming in and it enabled me to put on the biggest parade with more activates than we've ever had, with, of course, the help of many other people. So, any amount you can afford to donate in this slow economy would be greatly appreciated. Checks should be made payable to the "4th of July parade fund" and mailed to PO Box 614, Schroon Lake,N.Y.12870.
Also, we are looking for parade participants in all categories, especially "old or antique" vehicles and horses/animals. It would be very helpful if you could get your entries in early. Please remember to write a bio on your parade entry form. Donation letters will be going out in the next couple of weeks that will have a parade entry/bio form attached. Kate Huston, Chairperson can be reached at 518-532-9745 or firstname.lastname@example.org for registration and/or further information.
It really isn't too early to think parade and fireworks!
