I sent out this press release the other day, since I'm involved with this committee (I organize the craft tent):
THOMASTON (April 4): The Thomaston Fourth of July Committee is busy planning the 2006 celebration. This year's parade theme is "Stars and Stripes Forever". Several new categories of float categories will inspire group participation.
There will be awards in the categories of family, merchant, neighborhood, and business/organization floats. The committee wants people to use this opportunity to express their creativity, display group spirit, entertain others, and celebrate the holiday.
The committee encourages people to start planning now for this exuberant tradition. Committee chair, Doug Erickson, says, "Show your community spirit, your patriotic spirit! Get involved and make a float this year." Contact Erickson at 596-7478 for parade guidelines and applications, or visit online at www.thomaston4thofjuly.comI think this may also be viewed at the Village Soup for a couple weeks.
