Many hands help create a parade

The Homer Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Center would like to extend a warm thank you to all the amazing volunteers and public servants who helped make the 2013 Winter Carnival parade a success.
Thank you to the public for coming out to enjoy the parade. We are happy to say it was a beautiful day to be enjoying a parade. We would like to thank everyone for keeping the roads clear during the parade to ensure the safety of everyone involved.
Thank you to:
Road Blockers: Paul and Debbie Dauphinais, Dee Macy, Julie and Steve Parizek, Pat Melone, Elder Perkins, Elder Bunch, Paula Riley, Paula Frisinger, Julie Davis and Jo Davis;
Staging Helpers: Maura Gibson and Debbie Speakman;
The American Legion for the color guard;
Public Works for the use of the road blocks;
Cinda and Greg Maritn for the delivery and set-up of the road blocks;
Bay Realty for allowing the use of their facility for the judge’s station and for being such a great host to the judges and emcees;
Chris Story and Monte Davis for being such great emcees; and
Judges Alita Mahan, Helen Phipps and Crystal Rogers.
Lastly, a huge thank you to Alaska USA Federal Credit Union for being such a generous sponsor of this year’s Winter Carnival.
This parade would not be what it is without the help from these amazing volunteers and without the great folks that take time to come up with floats and routines to participate in this event.
Thank you for a great Winter Carnival.
