The theme for the 2015 St. Johns Parade was “We are Family.” As a family oriented agency in the neighborhood, Community of Hope was invited to be the Grand Marshall of the Parade.
We had great fun waving at the crowds and seeing friends among them. It was exciting to have this honor, and our arms didn’t even get too tired!
I was very impressed with the hard work of the committee who made this happen. The hours of work, organization, and enthusiasm paid off!
Because we were in the first car, we got to go back and enjoy the rest of the parade. It was fun to wave at the rest of the folks in the parade from the crowd. I found it is much more fun to wave when others wave back! It will change my parade viewing forever!
I am grateful for the recognition of the community for the wonderful work Community of Hope does. I am honored to be in a long line of those who have made such a difference in our community.
