Williams Prepares for Pioneer Day

By: Lloyd Green Jr. |

With summer just around the corner, the Community of Williams has begun its preparation for Pioneer Days 2012.

Pioneer Day, an annual celebration since the 1970’s, has maintained its heritage by tying the celebration to the roots of its community. With popular themes such as “Pioneering with Purpose”, ‘Were back again in 2010” and now the 2012 Williams Pioneer Day will feature a classic theme “Hometown USA”.

Celebrating the heritage of the community, the Citizens will be showcasing their appreciation to the local heroes that allow us to keep our hometowns safe. Local police, fire, public works, emergency services, and military alike are the center feature for the 2012 event.

Activities will include the ever-popular Pioneer Day Parade, Downtown Street Vendors, and Kids Activities in the Park, Rugby Tournament, Community Street Dance, Fireworks Display, and much more!

Selected as the 2012 Grand Marshall is Gloria Estrada, mother of the recent fallen soldier Pfc. Rueben ‘Boy’ Lopez and a parade of local military, past and present.

“This is my seventh year as the parade chair and we are making some changes this year,” Said Anglea Plachek-Fulcher parade chairperson, “not only the parade, but to many of the other activities of the day in an effort to make it more welcoming to the entire community.”

One of those changes is the location change of the Pioneer Day Vendors in the Park have been relocated to ‘E’ Street, between 6th & 7th – in the same area as the Downtown Holiday Stroll during the Festival of Lights.

Additionally, the group will be enforcing a NO CANDY THROWING RULE; as it poses a severe safety risk and creates unnecessary litter.

Activities will start at 9:00 a.m. with the downtown vendors, following the Parade at 10:00 a.m., Children’s Activities will begin at 11:00 a.m. in Redinger Park and the Rugby tournament held at Venice Park will begin at 11:30 a.m.

There is no Entry Fee to enter the Pioneer Day Parade; however, participants must full out and return a application.  Downtown Street vendors require a registration fee of $20 for Profit, $10 for Non-Profits, and Informational Booths are Free. Vendor applications are due by May 28th.

Applications can be picked up at Shear Class, Williams City Hall, and available at www.citizensforabetterwilliams.com.

“I am very fortunate to have a great group of volunteers in the Citizens for a Better Williams as well as our public works department, police department and the Colusa county volunteers.” Said Plachek-Fulcher, “Without the mutual efforts of all these agencies our Pioneer Day would not be the event that it is.”
