Holiday parade was a community effort

December 23, 2009 - Dear editor,

The Orion Area Parade Group would like to thank all that helped make this year's Holly Jolly Folly and Holiday Lighted Parade the most successful events ever.

We would like to thank Golling Buick Pontiac GMC for sponsoring our only fundraiser, the Holly Jolly Folly. Also The Lake Orion Girls Choir who sang at the Holly Jolly Folly.

To all our guests that attended and continue to support the Holly Jolly Folly and all of our food vendors, Sports Authentics who handled our silent auction, all of the businesses who donated to our silent and Kangaroo Auction and to all of the people who helped put this great event on.

Also thank you to those who donated food to the Lake Orion Eagles. Many homes didn't go without food because of your donation.

The Parade was even bigger than ever because of the community. You all spent many many hours planning, building, being in the cold and then taking that big step thru the streets of the Village of Lake Orion to show all of use your lighted floats, costumes, cars and trucks.

You are the reason that the parade is so successful and the Parade Group thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.

I would like to thank a few special businesses who as part of the community went on and above what we could have asked for. I know that I might miss some of you and I'm sorry. It would take the whole Orion Review to thank all of you.

Thank you Lake Orion Police Dept, The Lake Orion Review, LOHS Marketing Class, Articulate Signs-Graphics, ONTV, M&B Graphics, Oakland Press, Golling Buick Pontiac GMC, and Ed's Broadway Costume Shop who not only supplied all of our great costumes but also came up with the great idea to put the lights on our costume characters.

But again most of all THANK YOU Lake Orion for your continued support and participation in both of our events. Have a Happy and Safe Holiday Season.
