12/6/2014 - Mayor Stephen Galliher and City Councilmembers Participate in 2014 Christmas Parade
Mayor Stephen Galliher and members of City Council greet Brigadier General Glen VanHerck from Whiteman Air Force Base just minutes before the 2014 Sedalia Area Chamber of Commerce’s Christmas parade began. This year’s parade theme was, “A Salute to Our Troops.” What a wonderful way for Sedalia to thank our military neighbors by cheering for Brigadier General and Mrs. VanHerck and members of Whiteman’s 509th Security Force Squadron as they participated in the December 6 parade!
Christmas is not only a time of celebration but also one of remembrance. The red hats worn by Mayor Stephen Galliher and the Sedalia City Council were purchased last year by former Councilwoman Wanda Monsees in hopes that Sedalia Council might wear them during the 2013 Christmas parade. Unfortunately, inclement weather cancelled last year’s parade and Ms. Monsees passed away in September 2014. The red hats were worn this year in honor of Wanda Monsees; a former City of Sedalia Councilmember and a former Signal Corps Specialist for four years in the United States Army.
