A special thank you also goes to Rob Stone & Holly
Hutton from 99.5 WYCD Detroit’s #1 Country Music Station for announcing the
Parade, it was great to have a former graduate of Almont High School and resident come home to part of a spectacular evening.
The performance of
the Almont vocal music students under the direction of Mr. Adam Wetzel put
everyone downtown in the holiday spirit.
Skyline Camp and Retreat Center as well as the West Berlin United
Methodist Church provided refreshments and holiday cheer to visitor’s downtown.
The sound was courtesy of Universal Sound Productions. The Almont Fire Department is to be commended
for a job well done, bringing Santa to the downtown for the lighting of the
Christmas tree. A special “Thank You” to
all the participants in the parade – the floats were spectacular! We hope you make plans to join us again next
year on Saturday, December 1, 2018.
