This years Christmas boat parade is in honor of
Harry T. Overton, Sr.

Harry Overton was a long time resident on Dolphin that gave much to the community. Harry never missed a city council meeting and kept up with what was going on with our community. He loved the Christmas boat parade and always knew exactly which canal the parade should start from each year. We will miss you Harry this parade is for you.
