A Blue-ribbon Fourth of July

This year the creativity of the volunteers from Friends of Fitzgerald Marine Reserve who walked in Half Moon Bay’s holiday parade was rewarded with a FIRST PRIZE BLUE RIBBON for their Marching Unit! Congratulations gang!

Carol Davies dressed up as a Mermaid, Betty Sills took on the role of Red Octopus, Carol Ferguson was a Moon Jellyfish, Leighton Nakata danced around as a Purple Ochre Sea Star, and Dave Karlin made an appearance as the Rarely Seen Orange Octopus.

Other marchers, dressed in FFMR volunteer jackets and tidepooling gear,  included Linda Ciotti, Tom Ciotti, Ann Hurley, Susan Evans, Beth Carlson, Marsha Cohen, Bill Kennedy, Tom Niesen, and Jack Vidosh.
