Williams Pioneer Day goes off without a hitch

[slideshow_deploy id=’71617′]

On Saturday, June 6, 2015, the Citizens for a Better Williams hosted the 42nd annual Williams Pioneer Day.

A day filled with fun, family, and good friends; Pioneer Day has been a long-standing tradition for the residents of Williams – celebrating its diverse heritage, and community.

At 9:00 a.m., about 18 street vendors set up along E street, selling delicious food items, unique goods, and provided useful information to the community.

At-about 10:00 a.m. the Pioneer Day parade began with the Colusa County VFW and Maxwell American Legion leading the color guard followed by area emergency services and over 25 parade entries.

“It was a great turnout,” said Margaret Harlow, Citizen for a Better Williams member and parade organizer, “we had a great number of entries this year.”

The parade entries were judged and taking first place was the Williams Family Action Center; the Williams Fire Department placed second, and Morning Star Inc. placed third.

“We would like to thank everyone who came out and supported Pioneer Day,” said Pat Ash, Citizen for a Better Williams President, “thank you for making the event a success.”

The day came to an end with a fireworks display, sponsored by Morning Star Company.

Williams Pioneer Day is a collective effort between the Citizens for a Better Williams volunteers, City of Williams Public Works, the Williams Police Department, the Colusa County Sheriff’s

Volunteer Unit, and the Williams Fire Department.

“I would like to give a special thank you to Morning Star Company for their contribution to the fireworks display,” said Ash, “I would also like to thank Fire Chief, Jeff Gilbert for making sure that the display was done safely.”

Ash also commented that she would like to express her thanks to the Vann Brothers for the use of their property to ignite the fireworks display.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the Citizens for a Better Williams Festival of Lights on Saturday, December 12, 2015. Next year’s Williams Pioneer Day will be hosted on Saturday, June 4, 2016.
