I Love a Parade !!

Only three of us were available and hearty enough to brave warm sticky weather and participate in Darlington’s Canoe Festival Parade.  But what a time we had!  It was easier than I expected and what a JOY seeing the children’s faces light up as they were given small American Flags to wave for our home town heroes.  I didn’t even notice the weather as they and the adults in the area seemed to genuinely appreciate our efforts.  We learned that we don’t have to get there as early as we did.  We gave out 250 flags but could have easily used 500.  We could have a nice picnic lunch in the cool shade of the park before the parade.

This could be an every other year service project…  Or we can do this at other area community events…
