Their legacy is our everyday joy, the multicultural, multi-generational gathering place, the crown jewels. We all walk the path blazed by Bob Parlette, Eliot Scull and the late Gordon Congdon Sr. More accurately, we all walk or ride or skate or amble by other means the paths the efforts of Parlette, Scull and Congdon helped create or preserve. How appropriate these three were chosen grand marshals of this year’s Washington State Apple Blossom Festival Grand Parade.

All three were involved in formation of the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust. All were prime movers behind the Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail. All were principled and consistent and tirelessly insistent. Thousands use the Loop Trail every week, perhaps every day. It seems like such an obvious and precious asset today that few realize what effort was required to build and expand it.
