“We are very honored and thankful to have CRCF involved in the parade and community year after year,” said Edwin Rodriguez, events and marketing associate for the Jamestown Renaissance Corporation. “We wouldn’t be able to do this event without The Resource Center as our title sponsor and CRCF as our fireworks sponsor,” said Rodriguez.
