It HAPPENS because of YOU!
The 2014 Boone Pufferbilly Committee & Parade Chair, wish to extend special thanks to the following for helping with the success that the 2014 Parade achieved! :
~~ Cedar Pointe Golf Course~~ for use of several golf carts by the National Guard
Soldiers with which to get the parade going, from start to finish;
~~DMACC ~for allowing the participating Bands to use their facilities and the west lawn for set-up and warm-up;
~~Open Bible Church~~for use of the east & west parking lots for parade set-up;
~~The Depot Restaurant —for generous use of the parking garage for parade and band judging;
~~The many businesses, non-profit organizations, and novelty units that signed up and
participated in the parade! What a GREAT showing from all of you participants in every category! You guys get better and more creative every year!
Note: (The $15.00 entry fee is a 100 percent return to the various School Bands for bus expense, and to participating students for Food Court refreshments, while waiting for the results of the band parade competition);
~~ The School Bands ~~(you were all great)—How can we get more Bands interested in performing the parade??;
~~The City of Boone for street & barricades help, & the Police & Sheriff Depts and the Reserve help for maintaining order, for and with, the logistics of the parade;
~~ Very Special THANKS to the National Guard Soldiers and to
SFC Anthony Cosentino and SSG Makenzie Patterson for their assistance in
recruiting soldiers for this short and intense period of “extra duty”.
~~ Along with that, A Personal thanks to retired Iowa Army National Guard Soldier Tom Larson, for his years of dedication and assistance in “stepping off” the parade going at 0930!
If I have forgotten anyone, it is not intentional. THANK YOU & let’s do it again in 2015!!
