The Parade Work Group

We are so thankful for the support of the community, our neighbors, and area businesses and organizations who joined us yesterday, rain or shine (but it held off for much of the parade!) for our Deerfield 350th Parade!

We would like to thank the many volunteers who helped out yesterday and the days leading up to the parade. It would not have been what it was without the support of our volunteers.

We would also like to thank the Parade Workgroup who organized the parade - co-chairs Kelly Charest and Holly Lankowski, Pam Hodgkins, Cindy Von Flatern, Rocky Foley, Denise Schwartz, and Lori Baronas.
