“It takes a lot of hands to create memories for the next generations,” the committee said in a news release. “Bring a family member with you, or a friend. Come, stand with us in creating a beautiful small-town memory for all the thousands of folks coming to Thomaston on Monday for the parade, chicken BBQ, children’s games and fireworks.”
