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

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.

On Saturday, our small town held it’s annual Veteran’s Day Parade in downtown on Main Street. For the 3rd year in a row our troop marched in the parade to show our respect and honor all those who serve(d). It is always a treat to see retired men and women still fitting in their military uniforms and proudly waving the colors.

This year we got to march right behind one of the local high school bands, so we had fun music to march to! The photo above is during warm-up, right before the parade started. The photo below is during the parade. The girls loved it!
