Return Norwood parade invitations as soon as possible
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.
