SFMC, Interact Club at the Manassas Christmas Parade

Contributing Writer: Andrea Lopez

Manassas City held their 70th Annual Greater Manassas Christmas Parade on December 5th. People of all ages lined up along the streets and sidewalks to catch a view of the marvelous floats. This year’s theme was “Light… Camera… Christmas!”

SFMC and Bull Run Rotary participated in the parade with the Rotary Youth Interact Club. Together they went down the streets of Manassas spreading Christmas joy. George Ellis, SFMC, helped to inform Interact Club of the upcoming crowd by riding his bike and getting ahead of the crowd.

When they arrived to the judge’s panel, Interact Club was ready. Together SFMC and Interact started a merry holiday chant with community members. The parade was a success. Under the sponsor/commercial float category Interact Club won 1st place!!!
