No, Nancy Telgard did not shirk her responsibility as Leland parade marshall, which was an impression left by parade coverage in the Enterprise last week. Telgard, the matriarch of the Bluebird Restaurant, was not the grand marshall, as the story stated. The 83-year-old business owner watched the entire Fourth of July parade from the front yard of her son Cris’ house. She may have missed a parade or two through the years, but not by choice. She could be found in the Bluebird kitchen, preparing for a post-parade crowd.
Our apology for the false impression.
