The West Point 4th of July Parade is amazing.  Something for everyone!

And a friendly and patriotic crowd to boot!

Once again we joined our friend, Mayor Joe D’Onofrio, West Point Garrison Commander, Colonel Dan Bruno, and a host of other organizations to march in the West Point/Highland Falls Independence Day Parade.  The 101st Airborne, Military Order of the Purple Heart, Wounded Warriors, American Legion Ladies Auxiliary, Rolling Thunder, and many more groups took part.  Once again the people of Highland Falls and the surrounding communities made us all feel welcome and right at home.

Watching Mayor Joe ride his horse was more than worth the price of admission!  An extra treat was seeing Gary and his half track!  Highland Falls feels just like its nickname “Hometown, USA”.

Thank you all for having us!

Today we joined a group of patriotic New Yorkers in New City, Rockland County to demand accountability from our elected representatives!  Several tables were set up and manned to facilitate the signing of petitions and people lined up in droves to sign them!

Clarkstown Town Council Candidate Diane Holland joined the party to participate and raise awareness of her candidacy to unseat a long term council member.  She is shown here reading one of 30 patriotic poems her mother has written about the situation in this country since the beginning of the year.
