Memorial Day Parade
by Mrs. Parker W. Hall
This parade is back when the big elm tree
shaded the center of Fountain Square.
Each Memorial Day the Women's Club planted and tended
flowers (marigolds) in the circle beneath the tree. The parade marched
around the square and over the bridge to George's Park for the Memorial Day
If space allowed I would have included everyone. However,
we have the firemen, their color guard and some of the band. Also the old
fire engine. Next are the Boy Scouts with one little Cub Scout marching
along proudly besides his older brothers. They are followed by the Girl
Scouts and Brownies. At the end is the antique car, sponsored by the Women's
Of course, in any small town the boys and dogs always
follow the parade. They don't want to miss any of the fun.
