The parade came to me on Memorial Day...right past my house!  It's one of the joys of living in a small town like Newtown, Ohio.  Everyone cooperated to put on a fun parade with food available afterwards.  Central to it all was the local veteran organizations and the town businesses and government officials.  The Syrian clowns brought the entertainment!

Parade floats were supplied by many, including Burger Farm and Garden,Evans and Motz Farms

Turpin High School Band showed up to give everyone something to march to.  What would a parade be without a Band?

The crowd was appreciative, waved their flags and cheered.

   

But most of all, we gave thanks for those men and women who sacrificed for our freedom.  They are to be honored!
