I want to give a great big THANK YOU to everyone who helped make the boat parade a success this year.
Our theme – “Support the Troops” – gave everyone an opportunity to honor our veterans and current troops who have and are giving so much to preserve our precious gift of freedom.
A special thanks goes to Buckeye Lake VFW Post 1388 for the flag raising and 21-gun salute. Once again, Howard Everitt played a great National Athem.
Thanks to Millersport resident and World War II veteran Nelson Trimmer for serving as our Grand Marshal this year.
A total of 21 boats participated this year, up significantly from last year. Many lakefront residents came out to cheer our veterans and parade participants.
