Home Town Heroes
This year’s Chehalis Christmas Parade Grand Marshals were every veteran who, through Duty, Honor & Sacrifice have given a portion of their lives for our freedom. The Theme was “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”. The following weekend we participated in the Centralia Lighted Tractor Parade.
Here are a few pictures of our entries:
