 To Whom It May Concern:We would like to invite you to participate in this year’s Driver Days Parade. You may already be familiar with this annual event in this small village, but if you are not, this is a spectacular family-oriented event that has basically put the small Town of Driver “on the map”. The Saturday events start with a wonderful parade that in the past has included antique show cars, various motorcycle groups, marching bands, various dance studios, and various organizations throughout Hampton Roads. Also included in this wonderful celebratory weekend is a Children’s Fair, Monster Truck rides, live music, fabulous food, crafters, an antique car show on Saturday, and a memorial bike show on Sunday, just to mention a few. All proceeds for this event are contributed to the Driver Volunteer Fire Department  Suffolk Humane Society and other local charities.. It would be a privilege to have you participate in this event. There is no fee to enter this parade, but a monetary donation to support the cause would be welcomed. We have included an application for you to reserve your spot. If you need any further information, please contact Steven Wright at 435-5399.We are looking forward to the best Driver Days ever and hope to see you there.
