As reported here last Sunday, and in my column today, I’m the grand marshal of the Pomona Christmas Parade on Dec. 1. (That is, until the Jaycees admit they’re pulling my leg.)
I’ve asked who has hosted this parade before, so we can see what company I’m keeping. Hector Rodriguez of the Jaycees has agreed to compile a list.
One name I’m particularly interested in is Ann B. Davis. A friend who grew up in Pomona swears that circa 1969, the “Brady Bunch” actress, who played Alice, was the parade grand marshal, riding through downtown in a convertible while wearing, why not, her TV housekeeper’s uniform. Anyone know if this is true?
I hope it is, because following in the footsteps of Alice’s sensible shoes would be a kick.
