Dear Richard, Janie and Mountain Democrat Staff,
The 2013 Hangtown Christmas parade was a huge success, and we are most grateful for your sponsorship and your efforts to produce such a gift to our community. It was wonderful to see folks coming together to participate, and community spirit was alive and well in the hours leading up to the parade. As we started to roll, seeing the streets lined with young and old alike made hearts swell with pride in our city. Joy was palpable and the air brimming with holiday anticipation.
We so appreciate all your efforts to coordinate this massive undertaking and deal with the multitude of logistics involved. You have carried on the McIntire legacy well, and we look forward to many more Hangtown Christmas parades in the future.
Mayor of Placerville
