Photo- John Rayner — Gloria Schryer  in the Carleton Place 200th parade Aug 1, 2019

There’s an old saying that goes: “It’s not where you are coming from, but it’s where you are going”.

Many wondered who this lovely woman was that was sitting on top of one of Bean Chevrolet Buick GMC Ltd. cars in the Carleton Place 200th parade last Thursday night. The more people I asked, the more frustrated I got, as no one had a clue who she was. Others began to ask me, and I knew I had to get the story.

I began with Manager of Recreation & Culture Joanne Henderson and she told me that all she knew was that this woman wanted to be in the parade. Was she a former local beauty queen? Was she a president of a local group? Joanne added that her name was Gloria, but again, that is all she had gathered.

Sunday at the 200th picnic I bumped into Community Programmer Sydney McDiarmid and she had more of the story. Seems Gloria, whose full name is Gloria Schryer  just wanted to be in the parade. So Sydney arranged for Bean Chevrolet Buick GMC Ltd. in Carleton Place to pick her up. That’s what we do in Carleton Place– we  are the town with the heart.

Joanne and Sydney called me over during the afternoon as none other that Gloria was at the picnic and I had to talk to her. I introduced myself and gave her a hug and asked her why she had wanted to be in the 200th parade. The very gracious woman simply said,

“I just wanted to be in the parade!”

She went on to tell me that she had a seen the signs looking for volunteers and had called Sydney asking if she could be in the parade. Sydney immediately said yes and Gloria went about making that gorgeous blue dress she was wearing in the photo. The day of the parade Bean Chevrolet Buick GMC Ltd. came to pick her up in a car and brought her to the parade destination. Upon arriving at the Carambeck Community Centre her ride was suddenly changed to one that Cinderella’s Fairy godmother would have whipped up. Gloria said her heart began to beat a little faster as the car was just perfect. They asked her if she wanted to sit in the back seat and she said,

“Oh no, I’m sitting right up on top!”

Gloria had always dreamed of doing this, and because of Sydney and Bean Chevrolet Buick GMC Ltd. her wish had been finally granted. August 1, 2019 will be a day that Gloria Schryer will always remember as she fulfilled something on her bucket list.  She wanted to go down in history as being the belle of the ball of the parade, and that ladies and gentleman she was, and is, and will forever be. Wishes are not only granted in fairy tales, sometimes it just takes the people of a small town with a big heart to grant your wish. It’s called community– and that is what we have here in Carleton Place.

Hope to see you in another parade Gloria!!

One heart can make a difference
One choice can change it all
One voice can travel the distance
And be heard all around the world

I was lucky to get a few words from Carleton Place Community programmer Sydney McDiarmid about the whole Gloria so I am adding this and thanks Syd!

It was a short few days before the CP200 Celebration Parade on August when I got a phone call from Kate Murray at the BIA Office.

She said that a lady had called looking for information about the parade.

I asked Kate if there was anything in particular she was looking for.

Kate said, all I got was her name; Gloria, and that she wants to be in he parade and gave me her phone number! I guess this is where it all started, where “Gloria- just Gloria” came to be… neither Kate or I knew her last name!

I was pretty excited about this, another parade entry!!

So I gave Gloria a call one afternoon, and let me tell you, it was one of the best phone calls I got to make.

I introduced myself over the phone saying:

“My name is Sydney McDiarmid, I work for the Town of Carleton Place as the Community Programmer, and I heard that you were looking for information about the Celebration Parade that is coming up.”

Gloria asked again who was calling.

I told her my name again and why I was calling.

“Oh yes Dear” Gloria said.

Right at that moment I knew she was such a sweet lady!

I asked her what exactly she was looking for in regards to the Celebration Parade.

Gloria said that she really wanted to be in the parade. She makes outfits/ dress that represent certain time frames through the years.

I thought this was one of the coolest thing ever… so of course I said yes!!

As excited as Gloria was though, she was a little uncertain and concerned as she wouldn’t be able to walk the full distance of the parade.

I told her to leave it with me, and not to worry! I would give her a call back in a day or two.

Now remember, we are only a few days out from the parade (and the rest of the events) so things were crazy over here!

I brainstormed a few ideas of what/ how we could incorporate Gloria in our Celebration Parade…. Then it hit me; OUR AMAZING FRIENDS AT BEANS CHEVROLET BUICK GMC!

 

e93dda88d8fb10058adb0050568b6442.jpg

I had been emailing April Bean prior to this as they were joining us in the parade.

I sent April an email and told her about Gloria and how she really wanted to be in the parade. April thought that was awesome and said that they would be more than happy to help out! I gave April Gloria’s phone number!

April emailed me back saying that Gloria was going to ride with them, and that they were going to pick her up at her house! How awesome is that… like really!?

The day of the Parade, I was walking down the street making sure everyone was good to go and had everything they needed.

The next thing you know, I was looking at a real life Cinderella.

I went over and introduced myself, and low and behold it was GLORIA… I finally met her! And she look beautiful.

I thanked her for her time and for joining us in the CP200 Celebration Parade.

Gloria expressed that it was a dream come true for her to be apart of an event like this and she was so happy to be “riding in style!”

This couldn’t have happened without April Bean and the rest of the team over at Beans Chevrolet Buick GMC; so thanks again!

This evening couldn’t have been better. It couldn’t have been better for the organizers, the participants, and the spectators!

It was truly wonderful seeing so many people out to celebrate this amazing town that so many of us call “Home”.

Carleton Place is a home, and a home filled with so many great community members who make it the best place to live.

So When was the First Santa Claus Parade in Carleton Place?

I can recall going to the Legion when it was located on Bridge Street (where Bennett’s Butcher Shop was on the east side, next to Dr. Johnston’s.  We’d see a movie and then get a paper bag with hard candy and an apple (and/or orange) in it from Santa. That would be in the 1950s.

From Rob Probert: 1962 makes sense to me as that is when Eldon Henderson started the Marching Saints. And I know that the band was responsible for the parade for some time.  I can’t say with any accuracy as I only moved to CP a couple of years before that. The Santa Claus float was kept in his backyard for years. The arena candy sounds about right to me.  I know at some point it was in the town hall as well… for sure when I was president of the Chamber and then it moved to the Bank of Nova Scotia where crowd control was easy—in and out the back door.

The CP Board of Trade Board went silent for a long time so if they had previously sponsored a parade it would have been dormant until Eldon started it back up…likely with the help  of Lawrence Donnelly.

I  found an old 60 year old photo of a Halloween parade that I was in. We marched down the main street and ended up at the old arena where the library now is. There was a contest for the best costume and I was one of the winners. My mom, ( Evelyn Sadler), made my entire costume out of Carleton Place Canadian newspapers, I am not sure who the other people in the photo are. Lorraine Nephin
