Letters to the Editor



It was a grand old parade...

The Editor:
The parade was a ‘Parade of Pride.’ For all who participated, many thanks. Blaine may be small, but large on civic pride.
John Flannery
Blaine

The Editor:
It is time to try to thank everyone that helped to make Blaine’s Old Fashioned 4th of July parade and entertainment a success. Jerry Huls – parade emcee did an outstanding job … thank you. Caroleeann Jenkins, Sue Cushman, and Elaine Murphy-the check in ladies … it never would have happened without you … thank you. Our judges - Sean Beaty, Cyndee Haines, Meg Olson, Larry Freeman, Jack Kintner ... thank you. There were volunteers to escort the children’s parade, to man the barricades, to drive our dignitaries, pick up tables, and deliver PA equipment.
Also a thank you goes out to Peace Arch park for use of the stage, True Tone Audio, Mojo Music, Blaine Bouquets, and the C-Shop. All of our entertainers volunteered their time and they were great! We started with Sardis Wildlife, Rockerfellas, Gary’s Project, Gloria Dawn, Rising Son, Bordertown, and finished with Wildfire and their own Star Spangled Banner. Special thank yous go out to Dawn White for organizing the Restaurant Race. And again to Dawn White and Linda Hickman who kept the beer garden going smoothly, Dana Werdal who ran the Chalk Art contest and Lisa McKay for the kids games. There are many more that pitched in to help coordinate the music and the traffic and the power and the water and all the necessities. Thank you one and all for making the 4th such a great day.
Laurie Hart
