The Almont Downtown Development Authority wishes to extend our sincere appreciation for all the businesses, organizations and individuals who helped to make our 11th Annual Holly Day Light Parade a huge success.
Our float prize sponsors were: Clay Stroup State Farm Insurance Agency, The Law Offices of Steve Schneider and Associates and Dr. Jay Vanderest, D.D.S. The Almont Lions and Lioness Clubs donated the treats for Santa to distribute to the children and Tri-County Bank provided the candy canes for Mrs. Claus.
The assistance of Lynn and Tom Marta, Herb Lowell, Stanley Mack, Jerry Oakes, Kevin and Lisa McNeil and our announcer Paul Bowman helped to make this event truly memorable.
The performance of the Almont vocal music students under the direction of Mr. Adam Wetzel put everyone downtown in the holiday spirit.
The Almont Fire Department is to be commended for a job well done, bringing Santa to the downtown for the lighting of the Christmas tree.
A special "Thank You" to all the participants in the parade – the floats were spectacular! We hope you make plans to join us again next year.
