Support makes grand marshal event possible

Published 9:11am Friday, June 28, 2013

On May 21, 2013, the Past Grand Marshal Dinner was held at the Knights of Columbus building.

This dinner is not only to honor the present grand marshal and parade commander of the Memorial Day Parade but all the past ones also.

This year, the theme of the parade was “Respect, Honor, Never Forget” and our dinner was also the same.

The colors black, red, and white with accents of clear crystals for the diamond effect look. Music was played during a delicious dinner that made for everyone by the KOC staff.

The master of ceremonies was Brent Pyles and the program was entertaining.

A silent auction was held at the end of the night to provide funds for next year’s dinner. All funds for the dinner night are provided by Silent Auctions and everyone pays for their own plate.

All of this is made possible by people who volunteer and donate to the silent auction.

They are: my three wonderful sisters, Suzy Bryant, Julia Jones and Sally Inglis; Lou Pyles, Kim Schwab, Ruby Kerns and family, Sheriff Jeff Lawless, Herbert Brown, Rich Donahue, Larry Holtzapfel, Joy Coffman and all the Knights of Columbus staff.

Thank you everyone for such a successful dinner and let’s start working on the 2014 dinner now.
