Patriotism on display in McLouth
The 16th annual Patriots Day Parade drew scores of people to McLouth Saturday to view a red- white-and-blue procession that included McLouth High School’s top-ranked band, a human flag provided by the Bank of McLouth, none other than both “George Washington” and “Paul Revere,” modern-day patriots, some on foot and others astride horses, dressed in period apparel and carrying the colors, and a trolley transporting just some of the many veterans who have served their country down through the years. The parade got going after Mackenzie Kerr, a fifth-grade pupil at McLouth Elementary School and the daughter of Marty and Alicia Kerr, sang the national anthem. She is pictured singing “The Star Spangled Banner” while three servicemen stationed at Fort Leavenworth salute the colors flying from a flag pole opposite the reviewing stand on Union Street, flanked on their left by State Rep. Ramon Gonzalez Jr.
