To the editor:

Advance Fire Department would like to thank everyone who came out to make our 27th Annual  Christmas Parade a success.  The weather was great and provided a special Christmas feel.

A wide variety of entries entertained both young and old.  This year’s Grand Marshall was our new  County Manager, Mr. Brian Barnett. Mary Nell Jones proudly wore the crown of Miss Advance.

Awesome music was provided by the Davie High War Eagle Marching Band.  The highlight as always,  was Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus welcoming the Christmas season.

This year’s parade winners were: Most Patriotic Group – Camouflage Humvees; Best Church Group – Calvary West; Most Festive Fire Department – Advance Fire Department; Best Vintage Car – Efird Lee Garage; Best Band – Davie High War Eagles; Best Vintage Tractor – Southern Star Farms; Best Dance Team – Advance Dance; Best Animal Group – Christmas Pigs; Best Civic Group – Toys for Tots; Most Outrageous – Grinch in the Truck; Best All Around – Cub Scout Pack 732; Best Youth Sports – Shady Grove Bulldogs.

A special thank you to all who work to make this event possible.  Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas season.

Ronnie Robertson, PIO
