WOODLAND – It’s become as traditional as the dogwoods blooming in early Spring.

The Town of Woodland is in the midst of putting together its seventh annual Easter Parade. This year’s event is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 3.

The Grand Marshals for the 2004 parade are Joe and Thomosena Boone, owners and operators of Holloman Sausage in Woodland. Mrs. Boone is a veteran member of the Woodland Town Council, first elected in 1991. The couple is very active in community activities as well as within Jerusalem Baptist Church.

According to Woodland Mayor Margaret Burgwyn, the town is currently in the process of accepting applications for groups or individuals wishing to participate in the parade.

&uot;We would love to see the entries carry a religious or secular Easter theme, but we do welcome all entries,&uot; said Mayor Burgwyn.

The Mayor added that entries could include antique vehicles, bicycle riders, horses and others.

To enter or to obtain additional information, call the Woodland Town Hall at 587-7161. The fax line is 587-1893.

Parade entries will be asked to begin lining up at 10 a.m. in the area of the Woodland National Guard Armory and Fineline Industry, located at the end of Cherry Street. The parade will make its way east on Main Street (US 258).

As an added treat, members of the Woodland Volunteer Fire Department will sell hot dogs at Timberlake’s Service Center (the intersection of Main St. and Spruce St.) during the parade.
