Dear Editor,

On behalf of the Paulding Chamber of Commerce, thank you to everyone who attended the Merry and Bright Christmas Parade on Tuesday, Nov. 28. The event was full of community cheer, tons of lights, an awesome parade and creative parade entries.

Of course, we can’t forget the man of the hour, Santa Claus, who made an appearance.

The Paulding Chamber of Commerce would also like to thank all the businesses and organizations that were in the parade, provided food, donated time and services, and overall made it enjoyable for all who attended.

Finally, a big thank you to the Merry and Bright committee, Solid Ground, Ace Hardware, Gorrell Brothers, MY 102.7, 4-H kids and their families, Friends of the Paulding Chamber, and many more for their countless hours of planning, decorating, organizing and hard work to make the Merry and Bright Christmas Parade a Christmas tradition for the whole family to enjoy. See you next year!
