Congrats to The Parade Company’s 2022 Phil Campbell Volunteer of the Year

We want to extend a huge congratulations to Larry DeBaker, The Parade Company‘s 2022 Phil Campbell Volunteer of the Year presented by Gardner White!

Larry is celebrating his 26th year as a Parade Company volunteer and does double duty on Parade day serving as both the Balloon Captain and Dispersal Captain.

When asked why he volunteers Larry said, “The answer for me is quite simple… to see a group of people getting together from many different backgrounds and walks of life giving their time freely and their only payment is the greatest payment of all. The smiles of joy and delight from all the people that have braved the cold to be there celebrating and being thankful on Thanksgiving Day.”

We are so excited to see Larry and all of the volunteers and workers in just a few short months at the 2022 America’s Thanksgiving Parade on Thursday, November 24th! Make sure to follow the Parade Company on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to stay up-to-date on the latest happenings as we gear up for the Thanksgiving festivities.
