Coordination is the key to putting on a successful parade. First, you have to contact the North Pole to make sure you-know-who is available (he is). You need to get roads closed, proclamations read, port-a-potties ordered, judges, reviewing stands, shuttles, golf carts, cooperation from several state and local organizations and much more. We need to know the length of the float, truck, number of walkers, bikers, etc., so that elves Ron Thomas and Ed Hill can measure the parking lot the night before parade day and have you ready to go. I write all of this to encourage you to get your registration form to us so we can be prepared. Our 39th Annual Christmas Parade is Saturday, Dec. 9. We’ll step off at noon from the Charlotte Performing Arts Center (next to Charlotte High), head north on Taylor and disband at the Event Center. The reviewing stand will be in front of Centennial Bank. For more information, please visit our website or call our Port Charlotte office at 941-627-2222.
Networking at Noon is today at the Burg’r Bar, 317 Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda. Please call our Port Charlotte office at 941-627-2222 to see if there’s still room and to select your food choice.
