  Friday Blast
             December 21,  2012
    Your Chamber,
Working for you…
If you are reading this, we are still here and the Mayans were wrong…
We want to wish you a
Merry Christmas
from the Board and Director of
The Edgewood
Chamber of Commerce
     Edgewood Holiday Hunt n Glow

Was smaller than hoped, but still a great experience for those who participated.
Expect customers to come back who came running through your business for their answers…they now know where you are and what you offer.

Thanks to all who participated in the Hunt, Parade, and Glow.
Santa gave out stockings to many children who sat on his lap during the glow.
We have the bare bones of an Edgewood Holiday tradition.  Next year it will GROW..
and we were even promised a tree!
We were on Channel 7 TV on Friday and Saturday news…local papers, all over social media, and generally with the exception of some really nasty weather, we had a good event.
THANK YOU if you even told one person about it…and a Big THANK YOU if you participated in any way.
Winner of $1,000plus in prizes was
Ian and Christine Freemen.
A Big thanks to the 4 Balloons who
came out, and a special thanks to
the WELLS FARGO balloon, piloted by
Beth Wright, who managed to get the envelope up in spite of wind and blowing snow.  A huge accomplishment!
All 4 of the Balloon pilots,
Jerry Guziel, Martin Aide,
and Don Rose, who brought Santa to the event in his Basket along the parade route, were wonderful to work with, and did a yeoman’s job!
The Moriarty Edgewood School District was huge in helping our event.  The Float was so bright, it made it daylight around the float.   The Moriarty High School Marching Band and the Messengers choir did a beautiful job.  Many thanks to all!
Committee and helpers:
Linda and Rich Thomas, Robin and Pat Markley,
Cheryl and Vince Bonino,
Jerry  Guziel, Anne House, Traci  and the Edgewood Police Department,  Tracy from Edgewood Town Offices,  Dominic and Robin Prudencio, Kassi Aucker and Hadley Prudencio, Santa’s elves.
