Paramus Sunrise Rotary and Four Others Take Part in the Paramus 4th Parade
Paramus Sunrise Rotary participated in its first Paramus 4th of July Parade. They did so utilizing their members and their occupations and urged the public to JOIN ROTARY utilizing the Rotary District 7490 sign trailer. Members Deborah Mattes (Westfield Garden State Plaza ) and Bassam Mhich (Bergen Town Center) generously offered their pickup vehicles to assist the 4 year old club in their initial endeavor. Deb pulled the sign trailer and Bassam drove a vehicle which had a trailer painted with the logos of the participating groups; Paramus Sunrise Rotary, www.ParamusPost.com and Doctors Express.

The Rotarians invited their families to participate and the younger ones enjoyed the trip and the view. They piled into the back of the two vehicles and waved to the onlookers as they passed by. www.ParamusPost.com had five photographers capturing the essence of the parade and of the people who were along the curbs viewing the parade. www.ParamusPost.com has generously offered to search through the volumes of pictures and to send the .jpg to anyone who correctly identifies their picture and its location in the story along with sequential adjacent views to assist in its location.

At first, it was touch and go, what with the light morning rain, or would one just call it a morning dew??? Phone calls galore proliferated the airwaves, but, never fearing, the club pulled together to participate. Little drops of moisture dropped from some of the trees, but it was a refreshing relief from the heat of the day.
4th of July Parade Director, Ace Antonio, was seen scurrying back and forth using different modes of transportation including his running legs! He had several committee members riding herd in golf carts to make sure that they were in the correct marching order. This was important because each parade unit was correctly identified at the Reviewing Stand. Louise Suppo was the Grand Marshall of the parade and the vehicle transporting her was quaintly decorated with milk bottles on the running board. The Mayor and Council were at the Reviewing Stand to greet the many people of Paramus who took that extra effort to participate and to contribute to a proud Paramus!
