Veteran’s Day Parade

Today is Veteran’s Day!  This is the day we honor and show respect to all our Service Men and Women who dedicate their lives to ensuring our country’s freedoms.

On Saturday, our troop participated in our annual Veteran’s Day Parade.  It was a beautiful day, with great turn out.  Our girls were respectful and festive (and pretty darn CUTE!!!)

Our troop, and leader, were interviewed by KREX channel 5.  We showed up on the evening edition of the news. If you click that link you can watch us in action!

Our Service Unit won the “Most Spirited Unit” award for the 2013 parade.  Our troop leader accepted the award on behalf of the SU.

There are always some fun groups showing their support of Veterans.

This group of 4-wheeler “floats” stopped at the end of the parade route and gave us all their balloons!

There was one other Girl Scout troop in the Parade on Saturday, a new Daisy troop 10097.  So, we invited them to sit on our float and we marched together.
