2022 Honorary Parade Marshal , Michael Schroeder

As I'm honoured to be named the Honorary parade marshall for this years event it makes me reflect on past Apple Blossoms and how much our little festival means to so many around this area.. its history and stories shared from generation to generation and the meeting of friends from here and afar!

I didn't live my whole life in the valley, I was raised in the Military so lots of travelling but with both my parents being from here Dad (Berwick) Mom ( Victoria Vale ) the valley always was HOME to me and my memories of Apple Blossom go way back!

I've had the honour of building memories while working at KAPs with the Valley Bulldogs Rugby Club and walking in the Parade as a member of Valley Search and Rescue or the events missed coaching Rugby with Central Kings Gators while at Provincials.

As I now call the Valley my perminate home and my roots have spread with my own family can't wait to build more Apple Blossom memories with my Wife Michelle and Daughter Britton.
