The After Harvest Festival parade will be held July 15, 2017, and the Ellinwood Rotary Club is seeking your assistance in determining this year’s AHF parade theme. Please start brainstorming and come up with ideas for this year’s theme. This year is the 44rd consecutive year for the AHF parade. Previous themes have been about anniversaries of the community as well as state and national events. Some themes have included the industries of oil and/or wheat that are so important for this area. We have also celebrated with themes on current events. Someone suggested we tie it to our highway construction to include what we are dealing with and will be dealing with during the AHF. This year’s theme is open to your imaginations!
At the same time we open it to the public to nominate someone you feel should be chosen as the Grand Marshall for the parade. It should be that special person(s) who exemplifies the spirit of Ellinwood.
Please submit your ideas to Ellinwood Rotary Club, PO Box 23, Ellinwood, KS 67526 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. There is also a facebook page, After Harvest Festival Parade, where theme ideas and Grand Marshall nominations can be posted. Deadline for entries is May 19, 2017.
