Enumclaw’s Stars and Stripes Committee thank you

On behalf of Enumclaw’s Stars and Stripes Committee, I would like to thank everyone who was involved in the 14th annual Stars and Stripes celebration on July 4.

On behalf of Enumclaw’s Stars and Stripes Committee, I would like to thank everyone who was involved in the 14th annual Stars and Stripes celebration on July 4. The entire committee, all the volunteers, City Shops staff and especially the sponsors.

This event would not be possible without the generous contributions by our local area agencies and businesses: city of Enumclaw, Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce, Treat’s Heating and Cooling, Rainier View Construction and Roofing, Enumclaw Courier-Herald, Mutual of Enumclaw, Enumclaw Rotary Club, Rendezvous Wine and Brew, Helac Corporation, Enumclaw McDonald’s and Enumclaw Les Scwab.

I would love to thank each and every person who had a part in the event, but I would clearly take up the entire page.

We had fabulous events all throughout the day: the morning pancake breakfast at the senior center, the festive parade down Cole Street with our wonderful emcee Scott Gray, live music by the Kevin Jones Band, delicious cold beverages provided by Rendezvous and Cole Street Brewery and, of course, the amazing fireworks display, all topped off with the best weather we could have asked for.

Again, thank you each and every one of you who contributed to making this event a success for the 14th year in a row.
