The Stanwood Camano Rotary Club is busy planning and is putting out the call to those businesses, clubs, teams and organizations who want to show their “Spartan Spirit” in the 2010 Summer Parade. Spartans young, old and yet to be will come together on August 7th for this year’s parade, one of the pivotal events in the community calendar. Applications are available on-line at www.StanwoodRotary.org.
Together with the Rotary Club of Stanwood-Camano Island, this year's parade is sponsored by Pat Rimmer Tire Center/Les Schwab, Windermere Real Estate Stanwood/Camano Island and Thomas and Associates.
“As a resident of Camano Island for the past 18 years, I learned early that the Stanwood Camano Community Parade is unique to our community,” said Parade organizer Karla Jacks. “While I don't need the baby stroller anymore, the parade is still an event not to be missed. This year’s theme - "Spartan Spirit" - celebrates all past, present, and future Spartans that support our community. On behalf of the Stanwood-Camano Rotary Club, we welcome and encourage your participation in this year's event.”
Show your support by joining us to line the route along 271st Street NW in Stanwood, or better yet get together and enter your own team, organization or business in the Parade. The fun will begin at 11:00 am.
