Even with the rain, it was an- other big success again this year. There were many decorated ATVs, non-profi ts, businesses, RV parks, churches, youth groups bringing in fl oats and lighted entries to the parade. The parade ended at the Community Center where cook- ies from local businesses and hot cocoa were provided by Town of Quartzsite. The Chamber would like to thank the Town Hall Staff for all their hard work this year. The Chamber is so very grate- ful to Sam Saxton for offering to entertain with his beautiful voice singing Christmas music to every- one gathered at the Community Center. Also thank you to Lois Du- pre and her Food Bank volunteers for stuffi ng socks with treats for all the kids. A special thank you to Ancil and Faye Aydelott for step- ping in for Santa and Mrs. Claus, since they were so busy at the North Pole, getting all those pres- ents ready for Christmas delivery! Once again the Best Overall Trav- eling Trophy went to Park Place RV Park! The Chamber also wants to thank all the people who participat- ed in the parade this year and made it such a great evening's fun for ev- eryone. We hope you all had a great time and that it will inspire you to participate in the parade next year!! See Photos on Page 39 "Support your ho-ho-home town!"
