The weather was perfect, the parade drew a wide swath of the community to The Great Road, there were plenty of booths at the fair, and just enough of a wait at most of the food booths to let you know you were onto something special. The parade included local groups supporting climate action, the upcoming anniversary of Women’s Suffrage, diversity, political organizations, schools, churches, scout troops, dancers, town leaders, and young athletes. Jeff JHO Hoyland was celebrated as Citizen of the Year, by both local and far-flung fans. The varsity volleyball team followed his convertible, appreciative fans lined the parade route, and a group of college pals surprized Hoyland at the reviewing stand.
