The Would-Have-Been Great Parade
An open letter to the Three Village community:
Thanks to your generous, enthusiastic support, this year's Three Village Holiday Parade would have been the best ever had the weather not forced its cancellation.
This would have been the 16th annual holiday parade. All five of our Three Village elementary schools had floats ready to go. So did both junior highs and the high school which not only had a float but the school's wonderful jazz band ready to perform. Wolfie and the 160-piece Stony Brook University Marching Band were ready to kick off the parade. The Setauket Fire Department was set to unveil its new Santa float. Dozens of local businesses and organizations were ready to march.
The Three Village Chamber of Commerce was pleased to be the lead sponsor of the parade. On behalf of all the sponsors, many thanks to everyone. Let's hope this year's preparations can be the basis for a wonderful parade next December. Here's wishing you and yours the best of new years, with hope for good weather for this coming December's Parade.
Michael Ardolino, President
Three Village Chamber of Commerce
