Letter: Maxwelton 4th goes on, thanks to contributors


Maxwelton Community Club would like to extend a sincere thank you to all who contributed to our upcoming 4th of July parade.

Major supporters include Pickles Deli, Mukilteo Coffee Roasters, Whidbey Telecom, Cozy’s Roadhouse, Martin Davis PLLC, Savage Screen Printing, Detachment 1451 Marine Corps League, and the VanderPols.

There were many others who donated, and their contributions are greatly appreciated. Each donation shows the importance this yearly parade brings to South Whidbey. It is now possible to continue this family tradition for the 103rd year and to have a shuttle available.

We welcome you to the parade. Buy a button and a hotdog, watch the parade and enjoy the games immediately following in the park.

Registration is free and takes place from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the corner of Maxwelton and Swede Hill Roads.

The parade will begin at noon. Parking is available at Mackie Park, in the field North of Swede Hill Road, and at the “Little Brown Church” on the corner of Maxwelton and French Roads.

The shuttle will meet parade goers at the church. Handicap parking is available at Mackie Park.

Thank you again.

The community support is awesome!

BJ Hoogerwerf, president

Maxwelton Community Club,
