State fair parade support appreciated

Posted: Thursday, August 27, 2009

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the people who particpated in the Kenai Peninsula Fair Parade held on Aug. 22 in Ninilchik. We had almost 20 entries for the parade this year, and it was a great success as well as lots of fun. A special thanks to the Anchor Point VFW, the Ninilchik American Legion, and to the Women's Auxillary. Thank you so much to Uncle Sam (our friend Mickey from Wisconsin) and to Smokey the Bear (my grandson Richard). The Harley Motorcycle Club from Soldotna who demonstrated their fantastic riding ability. The Ninilchik Fire Department and Emergency Ambulance who brought their fine vehicles to display. There were many other people who helped to make this parade a success, my husband who put up with me during the whole process, Lara for helping make it possible and to the Inlet View Restaurant for allowing us to use their parking lot. And to the American Legion for allowing us to end the parade in their parking lot. To the guys who directed traffic, your help was most appreciated.

And most of all the the folks who patiently waited in line for our parade to take place. Thanks to all of you.
