Christmas Parade Huge Success

New Wilmington Area Chamber of Commerce’ Administrative Assistant, Dianne Garrett, says “the Christmas Parade & Light Up the Diamond was a huge success again this year.”

Hundreds of people lined the streets to watch the Parade despide the rainy weather.  Parade attendees enjoyed free cookies & hot choclate, and listened to the Wilmington Area High School Band.

Mayor Wendell Wagner led the Parade procession, and Old Betsy brought up the end carring Santa Claus.  In between marched the Wilmington High School Band, several walking and driving groups, floats, and fire departments.

A panel of judges voted the following as winners of the ‘Country Christmas’ parade theme:  1st place – New Wilmington Boro, 2nd place – Wilmington Area Cheerleaders, and 3rd place – New Wilmington United Methodist Church.

Thanks also go to Jessie & Clem Hassinger for donating the Community Christmas Tree.

 Monetary donations were made by Wilson’s Lumber, Jill A. Jack (State Farm), Beth Verterano (Ameriprise Financial), Armstrong Cable, New Wilmington Motors, Terri Patterson (Flowers on Vine) Mary Criss Garrett (First National Bank) and the New Wilmington Volunteer Fire Department.

Also, huge thanks to Jameson Health Systems for use of their parking lot and Brian Taylor & Associates of Ameriprise Financial, Market St., New Wilmington for donating the cookies and hot chocolate.

After several months of planning and countless hours of preparation, the New Wilmington Area Chamber of Commerce and the New Wilmington Area Fire Department agree that this is a project they want to see continue for the community.  If there is anyone out there who would like to be a part of next year’s planning, or who have any suggestions for the committee that will be formed to work on the parade next year, please submit your name, phone number, e-mail address, and any suggestions you have to Dianne7G@aol.com.
