Mardi Paws is excited to announce our 2015 Spokesdoggie, Monte the Maltese! A celebrity in his own right with 50,000 social media followers, Monte is just a 7 month old, 3 1/2 pound bundle of pure joy. Monte was on hand at the Coquille Recreation Facility to announce the Co-Grand Marshals of the 2015 parade! The Miracle League Northshore wants every child regardless of disabilities to get a chance to play league sports, and the 2015 parade will honor two local children with such a zest for life and who
play in the league.
Ella Vidal is a sweet six year old who lives in Madisonville and is in the first grade at Pontchartrain Elementary School. Born with profound hearing loss, Ella has received a cochlear implant to help her hear. Although she is severely development delayed, this hasn't stopped her from getting joy out of so many things. Ella loves dogs, therapeutic horseback riding, and cruising the neighborhood on her adaptive bike with her big sister Savannah.She most recently played soccer for the Miracle League! Ella and her family have enjoyed watching the parade many years, but are very excited to be participating in the 2015 parade.
Clayton Burke is 8 years old and a 3rd grader at Lancaster Elementary in Madisonville, LA. He was born with Spina Bifida but that hasn't stopped him from enjoying life and doing what he loves, like playing baseball. He started T-ball with Madisonville Youth Boosters when he was 4 and was able to play an extra year when he was 6. Clayton lives with his parents, David and Susan, and his 4 siblings: Phillip, Alan, Rosemary and William. He also has an awesome dog named Buddy. Buddy is 12 1/2 years old and is a very devoted pet. He goes with the family as many places as he can, just like Clayton does!
