Just a thought about the theme for the parade in Shinglehouse ... why not a competition for ideas? Pick an idea from those solicited from grade-schoolers, one from jr.and sr. high students, and the Senior Center. Involving all ages, let ea. one have a winning idea, and an appropriate prize for the 3 individual winners ... pizza, ice cream, groceries, ride in a fire truck, tractor trailer, horse 'n buggy ... whatever!
