As the first Oak Harbor Veterans Day event coordinator I would like to thank the community for getting behind me and supporting the parade.
We had more than 35 groups participate and several hundred people line the downtown streets.
We enjoyed a dry afternoon and a lot of fun.
I would like to thank the City of Oak Harbor, especially Mayor Scott Dudley, the city council, police and fire deparments, public works, the NAS Fire Department, Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce, Oak Harbor Elks Lodge, American Legion, Whidbey Cruisers for VIP cars, ham radio operators, Photos By Todd and all the people who participated in the planning and coordinating for this big event.
We are looking forward to our Second Annual Veterans Day Parade, which will be 2 p.m. Nov. 9, 2013.
Any questions please contact the event coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
