Freedom Festival Parade - 2013

           Congratulations to the Parade Committee for a job well done.  The committe's work earned a first place finish for the "Pledge to the flag" float.  The flag was a two-sided 5' X 10' stainless and copper penny clad stripes, with black aluminum, and stainless polished stars.  We also had several tin men--an Uncle Sam tin man, a Man of Steel tin man, and local favorites: Cowboy and Mr. Shades tin men.  Betsy Ross sewing the Betsy Ross flag and Lady Liberty were on the float as well. Several members and their families also came out to help walk with the float and hand out candy.
If anyone has some good pictures of float e-mail them to me at and I will add them to this post
