Dear Editor,

Mayor DeFilippo and council members would like to thank all the people who were involved in the helping and planning of the YTR Christmas parade that was held on Saturday, Dec. 8.

The many beautiful floats, the Buckeye Local Band, and the decorated Fire Trucks helped make this parade the success that it was. The three communities of Yorkville, Tiltonsville and Rayland did an excellent job in making this Christmas parade a tremendous accomplishment, and are to be commended.

We hope this event becomes a yearly tradition, with the same support that we received this year from all three communities.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Mayor John L. DeFilippo
