Nick: My sister Liz fondly remembered these parades. I had her describe them to me many times. What fun for them. I was at my great-grand-nephews’ birthday party this weekend and Stacey, Liz’s daughter, had us decorate shoe boxes, put lights and a string on them and, just as it turned dark, we had a parade. We walked from her house on Fifth and Cherry and watched the Christmas parade from near the post office. We then resumed our own parade back home. I was so proud to get to join in an old family tradition.
