Parade planners weren't involved past two years

Aug 3, 2012 - Joan Lassiter, Riverton


It was with great interest I read the article in the "Fair Timea edition and learned Mary Ellen Christensen and Karen Mitchell had organized the fair parade for the past three years.

Shawna Shankle, who was assistant director of the Riverton Chamber of Commerce, and myself organized the parade the past two years. The chamber also donated time, paper, envelopes and postage to the parade. Several volunteers also were involved.

The past two years everyone in the county has been invited to participate, and letters were sent to every organization countywide. We had the best two parades in recent history. It is my hope people will continue to participate, but these two people had nothing to do with the parade the past two years.
