What happened? I too enjoy the boat parade EVERY SINGLE YEAR!!!!
I too am part of a gathering in which my grandmother, son, father,
sisters, uncles, aunts, cousins and friends. This is an annual
thing that we have been lucky to take a part in for several years
now. Is lack of participation going to stop our happiness? Why
doesn't someone post in the newspaper that there are boats needed
to participate? What about donating money to buy lights and decorations
to be reused every year by boats that feel festive and would
like to participate?
Every year we have dinner, watch the boats and then drive around
town checking out the Christmas lights. Please folks, spread
the word to participate, show the people who host this thing
that we are worth the beauty of this festive parade and excitement.
If we let Ketchikan fall, it will fall hard and take no mercy
on those who see Ketchikan as it is....... a home to many.
