There were 16 float entries. Lots of candy was thrown, and we appreciate everyone’s participation. A big shout out to Jim Marchini for running the games for the kids, the Lions Club for the marvelous salmon bake, and CBS for providing dumpsters and portable toilets. The VFW started the day with a tasty breakfast, and Glennallen Chiropractic sponsored the Fun Run for the 40th year. What beautiful weather we had for the day!
