To give you time to plan your entry, the 4th of July Parade Committee has announced the theme of the 2008 4th of July Parade on San Juan Island, “Island Animals on Parade,” a celebration of diverse island wildlife as well as special pets.
Again, Lin and Pam Pearson and their dedicated committee members are taking the lead to bring a parade that will be fun and memorable for all ages. The parade is sponsored by the San Juan Island Chamber of Commerce. Entry forms can be picked up at the Chamber office, Bison Gallery or Petro San Juan after May 1.
In addition, the Chamber of Commerce has begun its campaign to raise funds for the traditional 4th of July fireworks show on this favorite island holiday. This spectacular show benefits the entire community and is made possible through generous contributions from individuals and businesses alike. The costs this year will be approximately $15,000. You can help the chamber keep this tradition alive by sending in your donation today to: SJI Chamber of Commerce, P. O. Box 98, FH WA 98250, or drop it by the office at 135 Spring Street.
