To the editor:

I would like to take a moment to say a huge thank-you to those who helped put together and make the 2019 Hillsboro's Lighted Christmas Parade the huge success that it was.

Thanks to: The HUBA (Hillsboro Uptown Business Association) organization, the city of Hillsboro and its administration, Police Chief Eric Daniels and the officers of the Hillsboro Police Department, the Highland County Agricultural Society for the use of the fairgrounds, the Highland Amateur Radio Association for helping with parade lineup and logistics, Vance Family Farms, Brian and Lori Vance and Alex Butler for their great job of emceeing the parade and providing the stage and, of course, Santa Claus.

The parade would have not been the parade it was without all of the great entries, so
thank you to all of those businesses and organizations that entered the parade.

Thank you to all who came out to watch the parade. We hope you enjoyed it, and we look forward to seeing you again for the 2020 Uptown Hillsboro Christmas Parade, which we hope is even bigger and better.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all.

Joe Mahan
HUBA President
