The parade is very lucky to have the talent of Neal George of Salt Meadow Carving as a contributing sponsor. Neal has designed hand carved and painted Americana replica shields that are available for purchase through Facebook. Facebook.com/saltmeadowcarving. These 10 inch x 12 inch shields with accented 23-carat gold leaf can be displayed proudly inside or outside your home. One-third of the cost will be donated to the Hingham Parade.
