Letter: Elburn ‘coming on strong’

By on September 13, 2012

On behalf of the 2012 Elburn Days Parade Committee, I want to extend a huge thank you to all of those who helped and participated in this year’s events for the Elburn Days parade.

It may not appear that it takes a lot of time and coordination to put on a simple hour-long parade, but it really does, and that may give you an idea of what it takes to assemble the entire weekend.

So the big applause goes to John and Judy VanBogaert for their endless help, and also to the balance of volunteers that helped, of which I would not be able to name without forgetting someone.

Finally, for those who have made the comment over the years to “get rid of the parade,” next time you see one of those soldiers, Marines or Cub Scouts, ask them what they think. I will gladly take your help in setting up next year’s parade.

Thank you again, and enjoy the fall.

Michael Stoffa,
Chairman, 2012 Elburn Days Parade
