Kiwanian Anne Batten, 90, waves to the crowd as she rides with John Mandeville in his Corvette. She was one of three Senior Grand Marshalls of this year’s parade with the theme of “Our Seniors are the Foundation of Our Community.”
The First Annual Joe Brosseau Duck Drop was one of many activities held during Saturday’s festivities. Hardwick Fire Department Second-assistant Chief Rick Sullivan drops the 380 plastic ducks from 75 feet to a target below. Kiwanis raised $1,900 from the fundraiser and the winner, Heather Lanphear of Woodbury, received half of it.
The Hardwick Kiwanis Club was in charge of getting donations this year for the fireworks show presented by Northstar. They were set off from Hudson Field at Hazen Union and could be seen throughout the town.
Hazen Union band members marched and played in the parade this year for the first time since COVID in 2020. Walking with the banner are Abram Leveillee (left) and Sadie Gann (right).
