The Menomonee Falls Christmas Parade was another successful event with the help and dedication of many of the Optimist Club members. After a rainy start to the day, the weather opened up and we had over 50 units entertaining the packed streets with Christmas music and holiday lights along the parade route. The Parade was well received.
Thank you to everyone involved in the preparations and execution, especially Larry Hebbring, Terry Fitzsimmons and Steve Flemming! Your hard work paid off! We have many additional people to thank for this event. Stacy and Joe Estrada from the Art Lounge and Dan Sheppard from the Legion for their contributions to a fantastic Optimist Float. Ann Freudental for getting the Patios Player Kids to help with throwing out candy along the parade route and dressing up as Whoville Who’s people. Parade announcers Rick Kohl and Jerry Mislang. Staging: Mitch Rea, Greg Mattson, Paul Mattson, Larry Newman, Stevie Wildt, Don Eisenhower, Jenny OKeef, Joe Reiter, Scott Dreier. Parade Marshalls: Terry Fitzsimmons, Laura Cilletti, Del Krueser, John Yusko, Larry Podoski, Cathy Sharkey, Larry and Nick Barbera, Greg Goss, Dan Schwind, Tony Bawiec
