Schreiner folks to judge 2008 River Parade

Dr. Tim Summerlin, president of Schreiner University, will be one of the judges at the sixth annual River Parade Saturday, Aug. 16. The other two judges, also from Schreiner, will be Dr. Tommy Noonan, of the school’s Health & Wellness Center, and Dr. Don Crandall, assistant professor of music.

The River Parade is one of the few parades in the country where the floats actually float — down the Guadalupe River from Flat Rock Park in Kerrville. The event is a project of Clear River Advocates, Inc., that is the brainchild of Schreiner student Marvin Willis. The nonprofit has a Web site at with pictures from previous parades.

District 53 Rep. Harvey Hilderbran will be the parade’s Grand Marshall. There will be food booths and a flyover of small planes to supplement the fun on the river. Special musical guests Harry & The Hightones will play for the after-parade dance.

The parade will start at 4 p.m. For more information, to enter a float or set up a booth, call Willis at 830-377-9838 or send an e-mail to
