Newburgh, Indiana
Thankful for Our Freedom Parade

July 8, 2006

The parade was postponed from July 4th. to Sat. July 8th, due to severe weather. On the Fourth nine of us showed up, but due to the change only three made it to the parade on Sat. But in true INSSAR Color Guard spirit, we marched proudly and in step! Ken Gilkey carried the U.S. 13-Star Betsy Ross Flag guarded by John G. West with his musket, while Peggy Gilkey carried our banner to proudly announce that the Sons of the American Revolution was the Official Color Guard for the third year in the Newburgh Parade.

Peggy Gilkey, INSSAR Ladies Auxillary carries the INSSAR Banner.
