Largo’s 3rd annual Old Northwest Christmas parade success

Largo’s 3rd annual Old Northwest Christmas parade success
To the Largo City Leaders:
Thank you so much for your participation in our 3rd annual Old Northwest An Old-Fashioned Christmas parade.  It was a major success (as we heard over and over from participants and spectators) and that was due to such tremendous support received from our elected officials as well as business owners and residents in the area.
Thanks to our sponsors, The Lions Club and Kiwanis, 3-time sponsors, and also to The Silver Queen, back for year 2.
The Largo High Marching Band and LMS Cheerleading squad as well as Largo's own Angela Rodriguez, a Largo Teen Idol contender who went on to be a finalist on "The Voice" and Conquer Entertainment artist Dre Jones who heads up our Largo Teen Idol competition held every spring definitely added to the entertainment portion of our parade.
We appreciate each of you who have been with us from the beginning and all of the vendors we add to the mix each year.  Thanks, too, to our elected officials including Mayor Gerard and commissioners Woody Brown, Harriet Crozier, Michael Smith and Jamie Robinson.
You all make a difference to our success and to our being able to make a nice donation to our Largo-based non-profit Suncoast Voices for Children, a non-profit that helps abandoned, abused and neglected children.
Be sure and save the date - as is our tradition, the 2014 4th annual parade will be held the first Saturday in December, Dec. 6.
Paula Hochman and Joseph Stefko
