Press Release:  The Cartersville Exchange Club is ecstatic to announce that the 2014 Christmas Parade Bucket Brigade brought in over $3800 this year breaking any past year’s collection. “We are so appreciative of everyone who gave to the Bucket Brigade. It took us longer to make the parade route due to so many people making donations to the Bucket Brigade this year”, said Lou Otos, 2014 Parade Chair.

“We had over twenty-five floats or vehicles register on site this year so we will not know our complete total for registrations until a later time” said Otos. A report will be sent out on Friday afternoon or Monday once a complete total is known. At that time we will know how much money will be donated to the designated charities of The Boys and Girls Club of Bartow County, Advocates for Children, Bartow Christmas Coalition and the Etowah Foundation.

Judges once again had a tough time selecting float winners with so many beautiful and creative floats. Below is the list of the winners and we congratulate everyone on a great job of creating their floats.
