The Show Will Go On!
The all-volunteer July 4’th Parade Committee, after a pyrotechnic discussion, voted unanimously to continue the tradition of an old fashioned Parade through downtown Amherst on America’s birthday, and to stick to our original 2002 Mission Statement of honoring public servants--police, fire and military.
Any group that wishes to march may carry ONE sign or banner bearing the name of their official association. IF the name of that organization happens to carry the moniker “...against the war,” so be it.
We also reminded ourselves, that it’s all about the kids.
