To the Editor:
Thanks for your wonderful article about our 4th on 53rd Parade Grand Marshal Joan Steggemann. We are honored to have her as grand marshal for this year’s Hyde Park July Fourth festivities and it means a lot to us that you took the time to write about her.
We’d also like to let you and your readers know that we are still looking for volunteers to help out on July Fourth for the parade and picnic. We need everyone from banner carriers, decorators and marshals to face painters to pitch in and make the 24th annual 4th on 53rd Parade and Picnic a success for our community.
To help out or find out more information about how to get involved with the parade, your readers can contact 4th on 53rd Committee Chairperson Stephanie Franklin at (773) 955-3622 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 4th on 53rd Committee also asks those bringing a vehicle, float or group of 12 people or more to register in advance at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/4th-on-53rd-street-parade-registration-17085488155.
Thank you for your coverage and all your wonderful stories about the Hyde Park community. We really appreciate it.
