Meet the honorees!
Ennis Chamber of Commerce nominated multiple honorees for this year’s parade
This year the Chamber of Commerce elected to have multiple honorees for Ennis’ big celebration. It seems a timely decision as we are all ready to honor the community and that has gotten everyone through some difficult times. Each honoree is a longtime resident of Ennis.
Wayne Black is the proud (former) owner of the Ennis True Value for over forty years. His contribution to the business and the community it serves has left an indelible mark on Ennis. Black cherishes the independence of being a business owner, a perfect sentiment for the 4th of July.
Sheri and Joel Shows once owned the Fan Mountain Inn for nineteen years and have owned the Pic-a-Nic Basket for twelve years. Sheri Shows was born and raised in Montana and is proud to have called it her lifelong home. Being a Ennis business owner has given her the opportunity to get to know locals and passersby alike through the years.
Rob Gallentine has been a resident of Ennis since he was nineteen years old. He grew the outfitting business his family purchased into the Shedhorn Sports we know today. He is excited to celebrate our Independence Day with family and friends.
Kris and John Hauck attended the parade before they were residents, happy to enjoy the sense of patriotism the event always inspires. The Haucks have been together for fifty years and owned and operated the El Western for most of that time. They love the beauty of Madison County and the people of Ennis.
Dennis Deadman of D&D Auto is proud to have served the community and is grateful for the thirty-five years of support he has been shown. He loves celebrating the 4th of July and has always been a big fan of the infamous parade.
Ennis, and Madison County, have given us all a cause to celebrate and the 2022 honorees, and Grand Marshal, are a fine example of what Ennis and the Madison Valley have always had to offer. As we celebrate our independence we should also celebrate and honor the community members that have come together to create it.
Happy 4th of July and see you at the parade! Read all about the 2022 Grand Marshall, Dr. RD Marks on page B1
