Medford’s 385th Anniversary Parade

Sunday was a beautiful sunny day. The city came together: cheering residents, marching bands, Dixieland musicians, kids blowing whistles, and much more. There were Shriners in mini 18-wheelers, classic cars, and community organizations from churches to Girl Scouts to elementary school groups. And, of course, a pageant of political aspirants.

Thanks to all who joined Team D’Aveta, cheered us on, and made the day so special for our community. My only regret was not being able to see all of the parade, since we were in it.

Here are some pictures:

I’m interested to hear your questions and ideas for the city’s future. Please contact me at the email, phone number, or social media links below, or via my survey asking for residents’ thoughts on a better Medford.

I ask for your vote on Election Day, November 3rd.

Thank you for your consideration.
