Parade float was a team effort

By
From page A10 | May 09, 2013 |

I would like to thank all those who participated from Central Davis and helped bring floats back to the Picnic Day Parade. We had a wonderful time making the float and an even funner time riding, walking and blowing bubbles in the parade.

Our multigenerational group was led by our younger crowd of enthusiastic teenagers. This float was the vision of Nancy Chadwick. She and her husband, Dick, spent many hours making the float with the help of neighbors. Thanks also to Will and Cammie Portello: Without their trailer and truck, our float literally would have needed to float. Thank you to Sally Ryen for the use of her garage.

And a special thanks to our sponsors: Nancy and Richard Chadwick; Gregg Recanzone and Julie Langston; Will and Cammie Portello; Michael and Kathy Maher; Sally and Maddy Ryen; Melissa Eiler White; Adam and Jan Bridge; Jan Agee; Carolyn Taragawa; John and Kaye Gamper; Desmond and Julia Jolly; Bob and Gayle Bondurant; Henry and Linda McHenry; David Coop and Marina O’Shana; Gunter Stuben and Laura Cameron; Barbara Heinsch and Michael Pitcarin; Davis Chamber of Commerce; Richard and Gwain Evans; Tom Phillips and Dana Stokes; and Richard Curly and Nancy Bramburg.

I hope next year more groups and neighborhoods are inspired to create their own float for the parade.

Julie Langston
