Kudos to the people who put together yesterday’s Winterfest Parade in Stafford. I only found out about it yesterday at 1:00pm or I would have promoted it big time. It was the embodiment of what small town New England is all about. I had no idea it would be as big as it was either. There were floats, some with talented young local bands like Riptide, animals, local businesses, Harleys, the Stafford High marching band, and of course, everybody’s favorite, the awesome Stafford Fire Department fire trucks. We were fortunite enough to get down there in time to get some great photos and video. My colleague, the talented young Kate Pisciotta, did an amazing job putting this video together, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPEQDrszu8g. Please watch it, it really captures what the holidays are all about. We are going to become more involved in what is going on in this wonderful town of ours’ and will keep you posted on upcoming local events. If the video puts you even more in the holiday spirit check out my blog “The Season of Giving” to see how you can do something to help people in the community during Christmastime. We are going to plan a special day of sledding, when the weather permits, at the Witt school in the very near future so stay posted. If you would like to, please subscribe to my blog and stayed updated. Also please tune in to the Paradiso Insurance blog. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all my friends and family and everyone in this great community!
