All Keesus Kids are invited to participate by decorating their bikes, buggies, coasters, scooters and themselves to march the half-mile to Steve & Ann Belter's property at the end of Flynn Road where hotdogs, chip, cookies, soda and beer will be provided for participants, parents, relatives, and friends. All kids attending will receive a parade remembrance. A free-will offering will be sought at the event to defray costs and fireworks donations will be accepted.
Plan now to attend and join in on the fun!
New this year, Tricia Engelking thinks it might be fun for Keesans to create an informal float with their kids, neighbors, etc. Since this is a family-oriented parade, get creative together and see what you can come up with. She may come up with a travelling trophy for the best group effort. Also, Brett Engelking will be playing his horn in the parade. If any kids, adults and/or families are musically inclined, contact Brett Engelking at firstname.lastname@example.org to start practicing a couple of songs to play en route.
Your LKAA will sponsor a Fireworks show on Friday, August 5th. The show will fire from the bridge between Camps Whitcomb and Mason.
