Spare Change Challenge

We have a winner for the Spare Change Challenge. This time it is Shelly Piechotte with Team " Save the Ta-tas". They collected a total of $408.74, great job! Thanks to Shelly and Ken Nofs for their fundraising efforts that will go to Taking A Shot At Breast Cancer. Also thanks to everyone who donated all year long.

We now start again with two new Captains and a new charity. Captains this time are Tom Lozowski and Jim Racz. The charity they will be collecting for is: the Department of Health and Human Services. Good luck Captains!

Christmas Parade

The day after Thanksgiving, yes Black Friday is parade day! We met up with the float at the north end of Port Huron by Casey's Pizza. Finished the float decorations that couldn't take the moving fast on the main roads. We were dressed in our best Christmas Parrot-fernaila. Sue was driving the truck that pulled the float. Sue also brought bacon wrapped chestnuts as a snack. Thanks Sue for bringing that. Tom and Candi carried the banner. Then we were off down the street.

It was a nice evening. Not too cold with no rain. The best we have had in a long time. We also had a really good crowd. After the parade some went to Cheap Charlie's for dinner. Thanks again to Jim and Donna Howard for chairing this for us each year. Thanks to all who came out to march, pass out candy and those who came out the next day to take down the float.

Float Build

Parrot Heads gathered to assemble our Christmas float. Jim and Donna's daughter and son-in-law have a pole barn for their business (Ainsworth Door) and they let us work on the float there. Thanks Ron and Michelle! We added all the elves and other Christmas items. Everyone did their part, thanks Tom for holding up the elf with your cane! All the lights were checked, skirting was cut and sails were put on. A picture was taken showing the lights.

Then we were off to Jim and Donna's house for food, drinks and games.

Thank you Jim and Donna Howard for chairing this for us every year. Thanks to all who came out to decorate, brought a dish to pass and were great company. See you all at the parade.
