The 2012 Crosslake St. Patrick's Day parade featured our William Crooks locomotive on a trailer that was pulled by Steve Roe's 1952 John Deere tractor.

Steve restored this great looking tractor and it didn't miss a beat throughout the length of the parade.

Clem Maust, Dick Elmquist, Bob Moengen and Don Bennett walked beside the float passing out N.M.R.H.A. brochures and Mardi Graz beads that Dick Elmquist provided. At the end of the parade, Clem Maust walked all the way back to our building. He said he did not find one discarded brochure along the way. During the parade, Butch Sommers, Darlene Blazina and Dave Johnson, and eventually Clem Maust worked the crowd of visitors at the train layouts. A great time was had by all!
