BEST OVERALL FLOAT:
This beautiful float, created and displayed by the Clarkrange Missionary Baptist Church, took top honors at the annual Jamestown Rotary Club Christmas Parade held Saturday. This is the sixth year in a row that the Clarkrange Baptist Church has taken top honors in the Christmas Parade.

Despite cold temperatures and the threat of freezing rain, the Jamestown Rotary Club Christmas Parade, held Saturday, December 1,  was again termed as very successful, with some 80 entries, including a number of excellent float entries.

Following the event, Rotary Club President Kara Brannon commented: “The Rotary Club is again thankful and extremely pleased with the turnout and thankful for everyone who participated in the parade — all the folks who came out and watched it, and for everyone who had any part in making it successful again,”  “We had another great crowd this year.  The York and Clarkrange Interact Clubs had put together about 2,500 bags of candy, and we gave it all away.  Special thanks to everyone who entered a float.  There were again some excellent entries this year.  Thanks again to everyone involved.”

In the non-commercial division, the winner, which also took the Roy Davis Smith Memorial Award for the best overall float, was Clarkrange Baptist Church,  who had a particularly beautiful entry.  Second place went to Tom Rosecrants  and third place to the Mt. Union Baptist Church

In the commercial division, first place recognition went to Pit Row, second to Union Bank, and third place to Signature HealthCARE.

The Rotary Club will now concentrate on the upcoming Christmas Shopping Spree which will be held on Saturday, December 21.
