It was a special treat for the Homer Chamber and Commerce & Visitor Center to celebrate the 4th of July with the community during the annual parade celebrating freedom and the volunteer spirit in Homer. We have so many people to thank, without our parade sponsors Alaska USA Federal Credit Union and Grand Stand sponsors Bay Realty the parade couldn’t have gone on. Special thank you to first time parade MC Dave Eckwert.
Thank you parade judges, Talena Kinder, Kyah Fisk and Helen Phipps. Thank you parade volunteers Megumi Beams, Terrilynn Dale, Julie Davis, Luci Maryott, Zak Peck, Susan Kaplan, Bob Neubaur, Pam Soderholm, Jane & Ron Echler, Paula Riley, Chad La Blanc, Dee Macy, Irene Randolph, Nelton Palma, Mark Speakman and Beth’s Boys. Thank you City of Homer police and fire department. Thank you to parade coordinator Jan Knutson.
The Grand Marshals of this year’s parade were Dave & Ruby Nofziger. These extraordinary community volunteers really exemplify the volunteer spirit.
Finally a special thank you to the community of Homer who came out and cheers on those marching in the parade
