Home in Henderson’s Christmas Parade Entry
Yesterday at 2:30 p.m. saw Henderson’s Christmas Parade.
Home in Henderson was proud to sponsor a vehicle in the Christmas Parade for the first time, an event we hope will become a yearly tradition. A special word of thanks goes to our own Copper Rain, who sponsored the project from soup to nuts, as the saying goes. Without her ability and inventiveness, the Menorahmobile would not have been possible.
We are also indebted to Henderson’s Superior Chrysler Dodge Jeep for the loan of a very fine Sebring Touring convertible which took us through town in style.
According to Philip Lakernick, the Director of the Downtown Development Commission, 3,000 to 4,000 people turned out to view the event.
First place for Original Float went to the Vance County 4H Livestock Club, which was awarded $300. The entry received a perfect score from the judges.
Second place for Original Float went to Oakwood Homes of Henderson, which was awarded $200.
Third place for Original Float went to the Little Miss Kerr Lake Court, which was awarded $100.
In the band competition, first place went to the Southern Vance High School Marching Band, which was awarded $300. Second place went to Northern Vance, which was awarded $200.
