The date is set (actually, it’s always set – the Third Saturday in May – Armed Forces Day!), so mark your calendars for May 21, 2016, and get ready for this iconic community event.
This years theme is “Celebrate Service”
We will be honoring those in our community that provide the services we depend on. The 2016 Grand Marshals will be The Streissguth Family, as our annual parade will especially focus on their contributions to the Parade, and in memory of former Fire Chief Dick Streissguth, who passed away in December. His family has participated in the Hazel Dell Parade of Bands for years, proudly chauffeuring the vintage fire equipment that was so dear to his heart.
The parade starts at 10:30, but there will be a Fun Run, sponsored by the Salmon Creek Kiwanis, to lead off the festivities beginning at 10:00 AM.
As more information becomes available and parade packets are completed, we will make that information available. We look forward to another busy parade (as it always is in an election year). If you have any questions prior to that, please contact either of our Parade co-chairs: Shelly Palmer or Brad Lothspeich.
And THINK SUNSHINE! 🙂
