The 2013 Deltaville Community Association Heritage Day last Saturday was another hot one—starting out with almost 500 runners in downtown Deltaville that morning, continuing with the annual parade that afternoon, and ending at the ballpark that night.
“As always there are so many people to thank for their help and working through the heat,” said Heritage Day coordinator Kris Scherrer. “I always say it takes a village! What a great village we have. Kudos to Bob Walker and Michelle Rother who organize and run our parade. Same to Lew and Onna Grimm for handling the crab races—still the main attraction—and helping with the parade setup.
“Thanks to Evelyn Turner and Sally Wells for manning the DCA tent—the coolest spot in town! Theresa Linn again handled the popular pet parade and children’s parade. Our setup and food booth helpers make a great team! Many thanks to Jill Davis, Billy and Marsha Norton, Jerry and Lynne McMurtrie, Al Langer, Bev and Gail Butler, Charlie and Bev Hart, Ken and Carolyn Schmalenberger, Sarah Lauer, and Mike Hurd.
“I hope I haven’t forgotten anyone,” continued Scherrer. “Also, thanks to our sponsors of the food booth, J&W Seafood and Deltaville Market. And to our local band, “Positive Mental Attitude,” which played for us again. We also thank the Deltaville Maritime Museum for their supplies used by DCA. And always to the care we are given by the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office and Rescue Squad. The art and craft vendors love to come to our event.”
Heritage Day was started in 1988, and before that it was called Deltaville Days. “Please come see us again next year on our new (and hopefully “cooler”) date of May 24, 2014,” said Scherrer.
