IL-West Peoria/61615 - July 4th Parade - WEN-7/4/12

Postby BLUERAM » Sun Aug 05, 2012 8:44 am

Thankfully this one started early to help combat the heat, but it was still over 100 degrees by the end of the route. This Parade always draws a huge crowd and is so much fun to me. I had several attendees personally thank us for coming out in the heat and for years past. I am going to have to remember to ask that we get placed away from political groups. Last year we were behind the Tea Party and in front of some radical constitution group. This year we were behind a "right to Life" group that was handing out little plastic 2" fetuses and "trading" type cards , No matter what your views are on any of these groups and others, I feel we need to stay away from them while representing the Legion.

here is the only photo we have of this one, its a link to facebook
