VB and the Parade

Volleyball and the Roann Parade

Saturday September 12th was a very busy day for Tom and me. We had to scurry up to Warsaw to watch Cassidy and Lauren in a Volleyball tournament. The girls are so much fun to watch. Brings back memories of when we spent so many weekends and evenings watching our three kids participate in sports and other school activities.

Lauren Rhea

Unfortunately, we had to leave the tournament to get to Roann for their parade. It is an excellent hometown parade. The town has a meager population of 400 residents, but the parade draws many people. If you ever want to see a good old fashioned, flag waving, hometown parade, it is well worth your time to travel to Roann, Indiana.

As always, the beginning of the parade had the traditional police and firetrucks


Fire animals of a different sort

There were Kings. . . .

and Queens . . . .

men or ... no... it is men dressed strangely !

lots of old cars

and floats with children .

What is a parade without a clown

or two

The parade had some strange animals

ponies with beautiful young indian girls.

The parade had a car with the Red Hats !

Shriners

Transportation of all sorts

Some people can nap anyplace

And my final picture of the parade is of my sister Barbara-waving to our family.

After the parade we moved our days celebrations to the far end of the town to watch a tractor pull. Barbara, Jane and I had never seen a tractor pull before. Dad loved it. He always wanted to be a farmer.

Always nice to see women partake in the competition!

Our dear Mother with her trend setting stlye for everyone to see.

Once again........some people can nap anywhere

We really enjoyed our day. We had time with family which is of course always important.
