We, as grand marshals of this year’s Independence Day parade, would like to thank everyone involved for making it such a memorable event.
First of all, than you to Nell and Gene Laughren for nominating us, and the Fourth of July Planning and Parade Committee for selecting us. Second, thank you to Maria Lockwood for the beautifully written article that appeared in the Superior Telegram.
Third, thank you to the Superior Youth Organization for sponsoring the first baseball showcase. Kudos go especially to SYO president Steve Olson, board member Dan Leif, commissioner Steve Kidd and director extraordinaire Jan Jago. Thanks also to Screen Graphics, the Stack, Play it Again Sports, Grizzly’s and Super One Foods for their involvement.
Thank you also to the Duluth Huskies organization and the players who were on hand to sign autographs and distribute tickets. Finally, thank you to the players, coaches, vocalist Tate Schliching, photographer Missy Siers, announcer John Leask and volunteer umpires Mike and Spenser Severson for lending their time and talents.
You, the good citizens of the fine city of Superior made the Fourth of July a beautiful memory, which will stay with us old baseball warhorses for the rest of our live. God bless you all.
Bud Brand and
