2011 Fresh from Florida Parade featuring OHU!
One Hope United participated in the 2011 Fresh from Florida Parade on December 31, 2011.
“We scored a touchdown with our unique football-themed float that had the crowds cheering as it rolled by,” said Maria Weber, CQIR coordinator for OHU. “Could have been the candy being tossed to the crowd though too!”
The parade has been a Florida tradition since 1947 and has been the opening celebration for the match-up between two great college football conferences, the Bid Ten and the Southeastern Conference. This year Nebraska took on the Gamecocks of South Carolina.
OHU was joined by a local baton twirling group, the Bright Stars, who completed a wonderful routine to the song, “Firework.”
Thank you to the OHU staff who volunteered for the event: Diana Campbell and Madison, Neika Berry, Rosalyn Thomas and Antwan, Barbara Moss, Maria Weber, Sarah Tunning, Lauren Prekop and Noah, Laurie Stern, Jolene Palazzo and Jazmine, Cynthia Hess-Jaffe and Dillon, Therese Hartwell.
