WTG Lois! You have volunteered many years to Derby Days in general besides the last 9 or 10 years doing the parade. I have witnessed first hand that even the years you have commanded the parades, you where still an active member in the overall planning/functions of Derby Days. We the members of this community appreciate and thank you for your hard work making our community better. All the Derby Days Board Members, event chairs, sponsors, volunteers, and any I have missed should also be commended for their dedication to community, thank you all.
