To the Editor:
I have seen that Robert Haggett has again sent our invitations to the Annual Fourth of July Parade.
I would urge those who received invitations to get them back as soon as possible as I know that this is a very large parade and as a past parade chairman for a parade that late entries can only make it difficult to line up such an event.
I would also urge that if you have a fire department that marches, please do as this parade is using state approved officials and it makes for a better parade to have more competition between departments. Also I understand that there is an award for auxiliaries of fire departments and in the past it has been a point parade for the auxiliaries.
Again I would urge all to participate and make the Village of Norwood and the Norwood Fire Department proud as well as celebrating our nation’s heritage. It is also a thank you to Mr. Haggett for his efforts each year.
