Yesterday's rainy 40th annual Olive Branch Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade marched on even though everyone was wet and cold. The bands had to cancel because of potential rain damage to their instruments, but so many of the other registered participants were still able to walk and ride the parade. Our Parade Grand Marshal was Dr. Edith Robinson, who has served Olive Branch and DeSoto County in our DeSoto County School System so faithfully for 40+ years and who just recently retired.
We had so many volunteers and workers, who were willing to be cold and wet so that this Parade could still go on~~thank you all! What a town we have! Our thanks to the City of Olive Branch and the Olive Branch Fire Department and to the greatest Police Department--OBPD, for every single way each of you served. Large and small ways. And to our Judges, and to Wendell Davis and Jay Nichols for the live stream video and photography, and Bryan Dye, our great announcer, and to Dr. Henry for the stage. And of course our sponsors, Northcentral EPA and Renasant Bank... We have left many people out because the list goes on and on and on. We are so grateful.
OLIVE BRANCH, MISSISSIPPI--OUR HOMETOWN!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS, AND A BLESSED 2017 to each of you!
