The Friends at the 2016 YSU Homecoming Parade

On Saturday, October 29, 2016, the Friends of the Mahoning River participated in the Youngstown State University’s Homecoming Parade. The Friends’ float was designed and built by Board Member Susan Holland Holub, Tim Holub, and the Youngstown Environmental Sustainability Society. The float received a trophy for Honorable Mention and Best Theme; the second year in a row the Friends has received this recognition for the parade.

In the video above, the friendly ghost in the kayak was played by none other than Friends of the Mahoning River Member, Ed Hahn.
