& Cacklefest® Parade
Prior to the start of the cacklecar
parade it is a tradition to read the names of those who have
left us since the 2018 CHRR. Each year the list seems to get
longer and this was no exception. It is a sobering reminder of
why we have these reunions in the first place. They were read
with respect by Bob Frey to a hushed crowd.
