Thanks to everyone who helped make this year’s parade another great success! What a great afternoon it turned out to be, even if it was tremendously windy. What was amazing about this year’s event was the amount of food that was collected - $22,000 worth, to be exact. After the parade concluded, we went to Chesapeake Christian Center to unload the food. Lauer’s had so much food to unload from their truck that they had to make multiple trips. Special thanks to the Northeast High School football team for helping with this unloading process.
We also want to thank all of this year’s corporate sponsors – A1 Septic, ACE Hardware and Hearth, Bay Country Rentals, Calvert Veterinary Center, Chesapeake Bank, Cityline Business Park, Fast Signs, Friends of Downs Park, Frank & Bills Auto Collision, Gable Company, Maryland Yacht Club, Kurtz’s Beach, Pasadena Pawn & Gun, and Redmond’s Towing.
Also thanks to Himmel’s Lawn & Garden for providing the décor, flowers and hay bales for the reviewing station,Delegate Nic Kipke for again being our emcee, and the Anne Arundel County Police and Reserve officers for maintaining traffic. Our Grand Marshals were some of the members who joined the PBA in 1986 and are still members today. They helped the PBA celebrate their 30th Anniversary. Bills Auto Collision, Gable Company, Maryland Yacht Club, Kurtz’s Beach, Pasadena Pawn & Gun, and Redmond’s Towing.
Mark your calendar for the first Sunday in November next year – we’ll be back!
