City offers holiday thanks

A big Davis thank-you to all the people who braved the rainy and windy weather to celebrate at the Holiday Tree-Lighting and Children’s Parade this past Thursday. This event could not happen without the many contributions from individuals and organizations, and we wish to thank each of you:

* Davis High School Cheer Team, for decorating the E Street Plaza, the tree and assisting throughout the event;

* Davis Food Co-op, for once again sponsoring the Children’s Parade;

* John Brinley Properties, for the horse-drawn carriage and Santa’s indoor visiting area;

* Leroy Dean and Christi Skibbins, for their direct connections to Santa and Mrs. Claus;

* Unitrans, Cal Aggie Marching Band-uh, UC Davis Athletics/Aggie Pack, Save Mart and Davis Police Officers Association, for making the parade memorable;

* A Grand Affair, for making Santa’s and Mrs. Claus’ area shine and providing the popcorn machine;

* Tom Cross, Randy Nelson, Jim Belenis, Jerry Lee, various city staff and Davis Ace, for assistance prior to and during the event;

* No Bones About It Jazz Ensemble, the DHS Jazz Choir, Danny Tomasello and the Odd Fellows, for their entertainment;

* The Varsity Theatre, for free showings of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”;

* Watermelon Music, for providing the main stage sound system; and

* The Davis Enterprise, for its extensive outreach.

This event is a true community effort and it is one of the reasons Davis is a special place. We hope it also encourages people to patronize our many wonderful downtown businesses, this holiday season and throughout the year.
