Rotonda West, FL-The December 1st Rotonda West Christmas Parade will be here before we know it and the elves have been working double and triple time.  The parade will step off at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, December the 1st, 2012, with thousands of spectators expected to line the 2.5-mile parade route along Rotonda Circle.   The theme is "Christmas in Rotonda."   Be sure to bring your lawn chairs, water, etc. so that you are comfortable and can enjoy the parade!

Marching units, floats, bands, veterans groups, horses and many others will be featured in the line of march.  Santa Claus will also make a special appearance in the parade!  The food pantry at Englewood Helping Hand will be recipient of spectator donations of non-perishable food items, household cleaning supplies, toiletries, new unwrapped toys and cash, of which will be collected by golf carts, with a number of them donated by Thoroughbred Golf Carts, that will be circulating along the parade route. 

Ken Birdsong will host a live broadcast of the parade on WENG.   The parade committee consists of Earl Haas, Sue Artz and Cathy Moseley.  All residents in the area are invited to view the parade!   The rain date is set for Sunday, December the 2nd, 2012.

But, right now, while this is fresh in your mind please write this on your calendar and help us to help others with your generous donations.   To quote Helen Keller: 'Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much'.

We are so excited and hope you are to!  We look forward to seeing everyone on December 1st for our Annual Rotonda West Christmas Parade!
