River Hill Independence Day Parade

Posted by Dave Lovell on Jun 17 2015 - 6:11pm

Dear Cub Scouts and Akela,

The 4th of July is rapidly approaching, and we hope to have a great turnout for the River Hill Independence Day Parade. As in previous years, we will have a “float” (a trailer pulled by a truck) decorated in Pack 702 and patriotic fashion.  The Cub Scouts, along with their parents, will walk the parade route handing out candy and miniature American flags.  A few details so you can prepare:

1. The trailer will be in line for staging at PRES by 8 am.

2. We will decorate the trailer from 8 am to 9 am.  We need people and staple guns – the decorations themselves are already purchased.

3. Restrooms are available at PRES before the parade kicks off.

4. There is no parking at PRES. There is limited parking at Clarksville Middle School for vehicles not in the parade.

5. The parade formally kicks off at 9 am.

6. The parade ends at the River Hill Village Center.  There is a reception for parade participants at the Clarksville Fire Department (they normally have watermelon, popsicles, cookies, etc.).

7. Most people find it advantageous to park and leave a vehicle near the end of the parade route so they have a convenient way home after the parade.

8. Cub Scouts and adult leaders should wear their Class “A” uniforms.

9. Everyone should wear sunscreen.

10. We will provide bottled water in a cooler, to be stored on the trailer.

11. Cub Scouts are expected to walk the parade route, not ride scooters or bikes, not ride on the trailer, or in the towing vehicle.  The purpose of the trailer is to bear the decorations, boxes of candy and flags, the water cooler, and any music amplification device we can get our hands on.

12. Cub Scouts are expected to be on their best behavior, as befits members of BSA, and parents are expected to ensure that this happens. Our mission is to present the public face of BSA, of Cub Scouts, of Pack 702 and its chartered organization (Mt. Zion Church), to help celebrate Independence Day, and to hand out candy and flags to parade observers.

Thank you to all who can participate – this is always a lot of fun for Scouts and parents, and I hope to see you all there.
