Parade a success
July 30, 2012
The East Longmeadow Fourth of July Parade is now in the history books. The parade route once again was lined heavily with spectators, the weather initially looked ominous but turned out perfect with a warm sun and light breeze. |
The Parade Committee wishes to take this opportunity to thank the people, businesses, organizations and sponsors that provided support for the 2012, Fourth of July Parade.
Without your continued support we would not have been able to celebrate our Independence and pay respect to our veterans, nor our military men and women who have maintained our freedom and way of life.
Special Thanks to: the citizens and taxpayers of the Town of East Longmeadow; all of our band and unit sponsors; area and community organizations; area and community businesses; Acre's Power Equipment; Bach Towing; Custom Auto Body; The Donut Dip; East Longmeadow Cable Access Television; Elmcrest Country Club; Hartline Stripping and Sealcoating; Joe Pereria; Maybury Material Handling; Mt. Tom Amateur Repeaters Association for Communications; W. B. Hill; Northeast Wholesale Lumber; Perron's Automotive; Reminder Publications; The Republican/Metro South; St. Michael's Parish; Stop & Shop Supermarket; Pride Gas Station; CJ's Towing; Wingate of East Longmeadow; various town departments and offices
The House Decorating Contest was suspended for this year, so that the committee could evaluate the route change.
