Perham Lions 'corporate sponsors' of holiday parade
The Perham Lions Club is now the "corporate" sponsor of Perham's holiday season "Parade of Lights."
Parade organizer Faye Schwartzenberger, who is also a member of the Perham Lions Club, approached the Lions membership about being the single major sponsor of the parade. She likened the "Perham Lions Parade of Lights" to the Macy's Parade idea, with one major sponsor associated with the event.
The Lions voted to become the corporate sponsor of the Parade of Lights with a donation of $2,500. There is also a multitiude of other organizations and busiensses that contribute to the parade in various capacities--be it donations or volunteer support.
The 2008 Parade of Lights will be the Friday of Thanksgiving weekend, Nov. 28.
