Parade committee up bright and early to get things started

By Brooke Kelley - bio | email

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - As viewers were dashing to the squares, the parade committee was getting their day started with their annual Adjutant breakfast.

Dressed in their white coats, members gathered for a healthy breakfast before heading out to the parade route. Adjutant Mike Roush and his staff make sure the parade's lined up on time and there's no problems with the floats.

Roush says they plan all year for this and work very hard to make sure the parade goes on without a hitch. "It can be tough and tedious to get everybody right and have anyone out of line, and you've got Sonny [Dixon] commenting so you want to have them in order," said Roush.

In just a few weeks the adjutant group will begin planning the 2010 parade.
