Parade Grand Marshals Miracle League Mascot Parade Grand Marshal s
Clayton & Buddy Bullet Rotts Ella & Monte
Reigning as our 2015 Parade Marshals, Ella Vidal and Clayton Burke, are two local children with a zest for life and play in the Miracle League! A program of Children’s Hospital New Orleans, the league wants every child regardless of their level of disability, to be able to enjoy the emotional and physical benefits of team sports!
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. 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 who is 12 1/2 years old and a very devoted pet. He goes with the family as many places as he can!
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 and her family love dogs and have enjoyed watching the parade many years, but are very excited to be participating in the 2015 parade!
