Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce Presents Parade Grand Marshal Award

Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce Presents Parade Grand Marshal Award

The Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Christmas Parade Committee, awarded the Robins Regional Chamber Christmas Parade’s 2010 Grand Marshall Award to the Den 2- Tiger “Sharks” Pack 422 (Cub Scouts).

The lively group of 6 and 7 year-olds were ecstatic to receive such an honor as they were handed the award and even took a moment to read aloud the plaque’s inscription as it was given to them.

“We had lots of fun coming up with the idea and getting the guys together to construct our float,” said Marty Hoover, Tiger Sharks Den Leader.  “I think the thing that impressed most people was our simulation of fake smoke; we used a generator for that.”
