from Boat Parade President Cindy Williams

Are you ready to rock? The Marina will be rocking and rolling this Saturday, December 11th, as we celebrate the 48th annual Marina del Rey Holiday Boat Parade.

We are so honored to have Larry Morgan of 100.3FM The Sound as our grand marshal. Larry is sure to make the Marina rock and roll even more as he goes around the Marina on the grand marshal boat, My Susy, owned by Martin and Susan Schorr.

In addition to the 2010 sponsors and contributors, thank you to the wonderful board and volunteers I have the pleasure working with – Lowell Safier, Vice President; Judith Ciancimino, Secretary; and Riley Walters, CPA, treasurer; board of directors – Diane Barretti, Christina Davis, Mia Falkenstein, Eileen Fend, Alie Gaffan, Kelly King, JerryMagnussen, Bob Singer, Debbie Talbot and Debbie Thomson; advisors – Willie Hjorth, Greg Wenger and Pat Younis; volunteers – Chuck Daugherty, Carolyn Epstein, Susan Haber, Stan Harris, Paula Madrid, Yayoi Magnussen, Ann Mitchell, Vicki Pasek, Elizabeth Sampson, Louis Scaduto, Mai Scaduto, Janice Solis, Joe Spereno, Rachel Sunday, Aaron Sunday, Barbara Wasserman and Melanie Williams.

Once again, we are so happy to have Lisa Osborne and Mickey Czegledy as our park announcers.

Thank you to Greg Wenger for photographing all the boats as they make their way around the Marina.

A special thanks to you, the community, for coming out to see the parade year after year and cheering the boaters on.

Most importantly, a big thank you to the boaters; without you there would not be a parade.

Best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season!

Cindy Williams, President
