Unbelievable!! Excellent parade, the best I've ever seen. John Robinson, his wife Maryanne & his Committee have done yet another outstanding job. Just when you think you've seen the best, you find out it gets even better!!!! Great job, Parade Committee. The Friends of the 4th Committee are to be commended as well. You have outdone yourselves again this year.' Thank you to all for your commitment and giving so much of your time to honor our Country's Birthday each year, and for making Braintree's celebration THE BEST!!: Georgia Pratt, Braintree resident
