Arizona Flag balloon“I have been involved with many parades and events and know that many hours of planning and meetings are necessary to make sure such an event comes off without a hitch. Truly this is what had to occur, all the meetings, recruitment of participants and searching for sponsors resulted in a very enjoyable Birthday party for the two Cities. The planners, volunteers, and sponsors should be very proud their work as I feel this was an event that was enjoyed by many people, both young and older.”
