| Riding a horse in front of thousands of parade-goers can be a very nerve-wracking experience.|
I would like to thank some people for making this a fun and enjoyable experience.
First of all I would like to thank the parade committee for their professionalism and also their personal attention on making not only myself but the other members of my riding group welcome and at ease.
Secondly, thanks goes to the crowd for their applause and good wishes.
And a special thank you to the lady on North Main Street for distributing cups of ice cold lemonade to the marchers. She definitely had the "Welcome to East Longmeadow" spirit.
