I was at the Chalk Art Festival in downtown Pomona a couple of weeks ago when Danny Holznecht of the Pomona Jaycees broke the news to me that the Pomona Christmas Parade was canceled. In 2007, you’ll recall, I was the 60th annual parade’s 60th grand marshal.
“You’re the last one,” Holznecht said.
Say it ain’t so!
City Hall pulled its funding and the Jaycees-run parade couldn’t go on without it. Find out more in Friday’s column.
