On a cloudy, cold afternoon, the Alumni Club of Knox County and Alumni TBDBITL joined over 67 other floats and entries welcoming the holiday season and Santa to Mount Vernon, Ohio. The Ohio State football team had just won the Big Ten Championship the night before, so there was a lot of “O-H-I-O” and Go Bucks cheers! The club was introduced to spectators with our brand new banner that had been presented to Scarlet level Clubs and our President Brian Breece at a recent Ohio State Alumni Leadership Symposium.
In addition, we proudly displayed new Block O door magnets and lightweight banners. Volunteers and Club members and officers enjoyed tossing candy to spectators along the parade route.
