Kenfield joined the parade committee 13 years ago and took on several responsibilities. He told 22News he’s honored. “It means a lot. I worked hard. 13 years doing this and I’ve been on the float all those 13. We build some award winning floats and we do it for the colleens.

In addition to his parade committee responsibilities, Kenfield is a volunteer at the V-A Medical Center in Northampton.
