Edmonds Chamber’s ferry float has a new home — thanks to SERVPRO

A home has been found for the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce ferry float.

Chamber CEO Greg Urban said that Leslie Weaver, owner of SERVPRO of Edmonds & Lynnwood (and a Chamber member) offered to store the float at its facility on 196th in Lynnwood.

For years, the float  — which each year appears in the chamber-sponsored An Edmonds Kind of Fourth of July Parade — spent most of its time in the parking lot behind the downtown Edmonds Post Office. But with that building undergoing a major remodel, the float needed a place to live rent-free year-round.

“Our sincerest thanks to SERVPRO for stepping up to help,” Urban said.

  1. I am so pleased that the float has found a home! Fred Bell spent so much time and energy finding the parts and building it, with the help of Jack Hall, a good friend and relative. Jack drove the float for many years, during the 10 years Fred was the chairman of the parade, and for several years afterwards. Fred believed the Chamber of Commerce needed to have a float, as they sponsored the parade, and since he was the chairman it was his job to make that happen.

    Thank you Leslie Weaver and the Chamber for not letting this small part of Edmonds history disappear. It has become part of our Edmonds 4th of July memories.
