The Monroe Chapter was given the opportunity to sponsor and build the featured parade float that Santa and Mrs. Clause rode in this year's Christmas in Ida Light Parade on Saturday, Dec. 4th.
Keith Masserant provided the trailer and the heated indoor location to build the float. Dave Perry, Tracy Oberleiter, and Keith Masserant designed and built the float. Senator Dale Zorn supplied the Santa's sleigh, and many members of the Monroe DU Chapter came together for pizza and fun decorating and putting on the finishing touches.
The night of the parade was fantastic! The float, all alight, was pulled with the GLARO Suburban, with Santa and Mrs. Clause in the sleigh.
To everyone’s delight, the float won 1st Place in the parade!
On Wednesday, January 12th, Senator Dale W. Zorn came to our Ducks Unlimited meeting last night and presented our chapter with the Grand Prize plaque for our float in the Ida Christmas Parade. Joe Marra, chapter chairman accepted the award.
