The Highlands Shrine Club thanks everyone who rode on the float and participated in the Christmas Parades in Avon Park and Frostproof. I think all will agree that it was so much fun! The turnout of families on the sidelines were phenomenal, and all were in the spirit of the holidays. The kids and adults were waving and everyone is saying, “Merry Christmas” -- it was great! And it was a memorable night for us all….
