|We have started planning for the 2014 Celebration.
Check out our Events 2014, upcoming meetings and committee contact pages.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
We want to say “thank you” to EVERYONE who helped make this year’s Natick 4th of July Parade a great success! The theme of this year’s parade was “Natick Traditions – A Spirit of Volunteerism” and no where was that more evident than with all the “volunteers” that stepped up and helped make this year’s parade very special. To think that in January when word first got out that the parade might not happen, and the outcry that came as a result, truly is a reason to make everyone proud of what was accomplished on the morning of July 4th.
Thanks to the expertise and professionalism of the co-chairs of our eight committees who took responsibility for only their “piece” and thanks to everyone in the Town of Natick from the Board of Selectman, Natick Police and Fire Departments to the Natick DPW and Recreation and Parks Department for their advice and guidance, the “whole” 2013 July 4th celebration went off without a hitch.
Unfortunately, the unpredictability of Mother Nature forced the cancellation of Monday’s Concert of the Common and Tuesday’s Family Night events.
A special “thank you” to Rex Trailer’s daughter Jillian, his business partner Michael Bavaro, Little Folks Farm in Holliston for providing Goldrush IV and Rex’s sidekick Sgt. Billy and the members of “Boomtown” who came and took part in the parade. We really do miss Rex and were honored that you let us honor him.
The Friends of the Fourth is organized as an all-volunteer nonprofit organization. We do not receive any financial support from the town and instead rely on donations. Thank you to all our “donors”, without your support, these events would not have happened. Please visit our corporate sponsor page (http://natick4th.blogspot.com) to see a list of those businesses that made contributions and when you visit them please thank them for their support.
Finally, we would like to thank you, the public, for coming out and watching the parade this year. We hope we made it fun for you as well.
Have a safe summer, and we look forward to begin the planning of next year’s parade soon. As always, if you would like to join us in our planning, feel free to contact us directly, we would love to have you become involved.
