League gets out of parade organizing
OMAK — The Omak-Okanogan Civic League is getting out of the parade organization business.
The group has organized the Omak Stampede children’s parade for many years, but said it no longer has the membership to organize it.
It suggested individuals or groups that would like to take over the event contact the Stampede office, or the event would be moved from Saturday to Sunday and included with the grand parade.
Stampede Office Manager Sarah Grooms said potential parade organizers should contact the Civic League, since the Stampede does not organize either parade.
The Omak Chamber of Commerce stages the grand parade.
