Parade 2017 ‘Peace on Earth’

Letter to the Editor

Friends and Continued Supporters:

While hard to believe, we are quickly approaching the Holiday Season. With that in mind, it is time to gear up for the 69th Annual Cambridge-Dorchester County Christmas Parade. With less than 8 weeks to event kickoff, we are frantically turning over every leaf to find donors and support for this year’s event! You may not know, but the parade is funded solely through community/public donations . That means YOU are awesome!

This year’s parade theme is, “Peace on Earth,” as we could all use a little peace with all going on in the world today. To commemorate the theme, we will honor our first responders, veterans and active military; those helping us to achieve peace on earth as the parade Grand Marshalls. The parade is scheduled for Dec. 2, and kicks off at 5 p.m. in downtown Cambridge.

If you or your business supported the event last year, your information is proudly displayed on our website www.christmasparade.org. (If we have missed you, please let us know so we can correct the problem)! We can’t thank you enough!

We do however need your continued support. Please allow this email to serve as an “all-call” for generating parade donations; without the support of the local community and our businesses, the parade would cease to exist. Remember, CDCCP is a 501(c)(3) and donations are tax deductible. Our EIN is listed on the donation form attached below.

Forms are also available on our website. Please mail all donations to:
CDCCP Treasurer
PO BOX 1083
Cambridge, MD 21613

As with last year, each donor/sponsor will be listed on our web-page and will be acknowledged during the radio broadcast the evening of the parade and announced from the reviewing stand to ensure that our sponsors are identified.

We are also seeking entries for the parade. Entries for the parade are currently being accepted on-line, simply visit our website and click the “Click Here To Enter” tab. What better way to announce and promote your business than to enter an entry for the parade to be viewed by hundreds? If you would like to mail your entry, simply download the form from our website and mail it to us.

We can’t thank everyone enough for all that has already been accomplished. We hope you will consider supporting this timeless tradition, and we hope you will join us for the 69th Annual Parade. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us….and don’t forget, Like Us on Facebook!

Sincerely,
Bruce McWilliams
Chairman
