As you watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade this morning, watch for two familiar Verona faces: Ann and Billy Gault. The mother and son team are among the handlers for the Skylanders’ Eruptor balloon.Macys2015-Gault3

Billy Gault, who spoke to the Board of Education this past Tuesday about his participation in Rutgers University’s Chinese Bridge summer camp, also got a photo op with Mother Goose.Macys2015-Gault2

This isn’t the first time that there’s been a member of the Gault family helping with the parade: In 2009, Ann realized what she told us was her “dream job” as a handler for the Ronald McDonald balloon.
