Thank You!

Many thanks to all volunteers and parade participants for another spectacular day of family fun for the Prestonwood Forest community! The fantastic 4th of July ‘Parade, Picnic and Pool Activities’ best illustrates how our unique community ‘runs and funs’ on resident-volunteer energy!

A special thanks to:

Pam and Bob Hughes for generously donating many hundreds of the small American flags, again this year!

Bonnie and Pat O’Neill and the Prestonwood Forest Block Captains for their time and energy to place all of the donated flags in front of 785 Prestonwood Forest homes!

• Parade Committee volunteers; Claudette McCamley, Renee Thompson and Larry Hogan for their time, and efforts in organizing the Parade participants and starting this year’s Parade.

Gary Craig, Ted Karis, J.R. Allen, Derryl York, John Broadfoot and the Prestonwood Forest Utility District for, again, underwriting the ‘Picnic in the Park’ food services for our residents and their holiday guests. (James Coney Island served our residents and guests 880 hotdogs in 2 hours – about 7 hotdogs per minute!)

Jim Schier and the Knights of Columbus Color Guard for proudly displaying the ‘Stars and Stripes’ and leading the Parade along with the ROTC Color Guard

• Our very important ‘First Responders’- The Cypress Creek Volunteer Fire Department for entertaining all on the parade route with an impressive array of vehicles and providing the very popular fire hose ‘shower’ after the parade! - Brent Cook and the Harris County Constable Precinct 4 Office, for their participation and for ensuring the safety of Parade participants!

Sherri Carey and her team at High Sierra Management for once again coordinating a long list of activities, extending parade invitations and performing the event’s procurement tasks.

• The Prestonwood Forest Maintenance Association board members, Luis Dunavin, Jesse Green, Larry Hogan, Chris Collins, Chad Catlett, Steve Jackson and Mark White who generously donated their time and energy with event-day activities, from area setup to assisting with food-services and with the always ‘exciting’ post-event cleanup tasks.

ALL of the individual and group parade participants, with everyone and everything decked out in the “red, white and blue”, for making this another fun and festive Parade! Please be sure to visit this website’s “Event Photo Gallery” to contribute your photos of the 4th of July Parade, Picnic and Pool Activities, and view those contributed by your friends and neighbors! The next Prestonwood community event is the “Fall Festival” - please watch for an upcoming announcement of that event’s ‘Planning Meeting’. Resident volunteers are essential to the success and evolution of Prestonwood’s family events, and participation is open to all.
