Rotary’s MayDay Parade with its theme of “Clearwater Life” is on May 18 and starts, as usual, at Capostinsky Park.
“We invite all businesses, clubs, organizations, volunteers, and of course classic car owners, and riders to participate,” said Ursula Schaer, long-time member of Clearwater Rotary and organizer extraordinaire.
“All of you are an important part of the good life we have in our community so we look forward to seeing you at this fun event. Please come with a decorated float/vehicle, bicycles or horses, or any kind of cohesive and co-ordinated group to ride or walk and wave to the spectators along the route.”
Businesses pay $20, but the entry fee is waived for all non-profit groups.
There is an exciting new prize this year too: “Best Overall Entry will win a Cheque for $100,” continued Schaer.
Judging of the parade entrants begins at 10 a.m. on May 18, and the parade leaves Capostinsky Park at 11 a.m. At the end of the parade, behind Raft River School, members of the Rotary Club will provide a barbecue lunch that is free for all participants.
Clearwater Rotary appreciates the donations from the generous sponsors who make this tradition possible. Their names will be on display, and we know you will find ways to let them know how much you appreciate this.
Thanks to everyone for your support of all Rotary events like this one and the recent guessing of the exact time when Rotary Richard would be floating on Dutch Lake.
