In spite of the odds, the annual 4th of July parade happened with a very respectable turnout. Everyone social distanced and some wore masks and it was clear that enjoyment was the top priority of the morning as we celebrated out country’s beginnings. Thank you to Tim and Marybeth Sullivan for hosting and for providing water and iced tea on that steamy morning. Such a nice touch! And to Jason Stefaniak, Mishawaka Police Department, who led the parade with sirens and lights announcing we were on our way!
