Honoring Harvey's Heroes Bookmark

We’re proud of our Hurricane Harvey heroes! Recently, we had the chance to show them off during the Tomball Chamber of Commerce’s annual holiday parade. This year’s theme, “Texas Strong: Honoring Harvey’s Heroes,” recognized public officials, emergency responders, county employees, and countless other volunteers who worked through Hurricane Harvey.

Grand Marshal's included Harris County Judge Ed Emmett, Harris County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, Precinct 4 Commissioner R. Jack Cagle, Precinct 4 employees, the Precinct 4 Constable’s Office, City of Tomball, and the Texas National Guard.

“There are so many ‘behind the scenes’ employees that worked hard for many days to get us through Hurricane Harvey, both in preparation for the storm and in the aftermath. We wanted to make sure they felt appreciated, because they earned it!” said Brandy Beyer with the Greater Tomball Area Chamber of Commerce.

Beyer said the event attracted the largest crowd in the parade’s history.

“Every entry honored someone who gave their time during Harvey,” she said. “In addition, members of the Cajun Navy participated in the parade along with volunteers and first responders across Texas.”
