Our theme is "In Memorium Of US Border Patrol Agents"

On Monday, May 31, 2010, the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 4647 is proudly sponsoring the 44th Annual North Highlands/Antelope Community Memorial Day Parade, one of the oldest and largest Memorial Day Parades in the Greater Sacramento Area. The parade begins at 10 am and starts at the corner of Watt Avenue and I Street, at the Family Community Church. The parade route goes south on Watt Avenue from I Street to A Street.

The theme for the parade this year is “FOR THE PEOPLE – THEN AND NOW”, recognizing all those who have served this great nation, and those who are serving today, in whatever capacity, to insure the ideals of American Freedom will continue to thrive.

There will be local dignitaries, marching bands, classic cars, youth groups, service organizations, equestrian units, and any others who wish to participate. Entry into the parade is free. First, second and third place trophies will be awarded in each category listed on the Parade Entry Form. A “Judges Choice” trophy will also be awarded.

This parade turned out to be pretty good. There was 340 or so entrants, and quite a few spectators. The route was about 1 mile long. I got there a litle before 8:00 am, and put the final touches on like hanging the flag and papering the marquis. The had all you can eat pancakes for $3.00, and I ate nearly 7 with real, artery hardening butter from real cows. I milled around and met people for a while, and the time to start came a little after 10:00.

The crowd was excellent. A lot of people wave and said thank you, and clapped, etc. The reception for Border Patrol has improved here dramatically. There was almost zxero detractors this time. There were a very few snide comments, but they were overwhelmed by the supportive ones. Here's a few stills of the rig, and some video footage is in the works now

Things have turned around out there. Before, I'd get a bunch of thumbs down, or derogatory comments. But now it pretty much rah, rah, rah, all the way. There's just a lot more people fed up with illegals, what the government is doing for them, and their antics. It's a welcome change. :D

Hey great job of raising public awareness. i did not fail to notice the enthusiasm some of theses folks displayed. I agree that the public is tired of the illegals and the politicians.
You get a great big ata boy!

The wind was great for waving the flags but it must have been a bear for any thing loose.
Thanks for a great job.

Oh what a difference a year makes!!! Those that never cared or didn't take notice sure have opened their eyes, and it's not always who you'd think that are changing their attitudes. This invasion has really hit those on the lowest rung of the social ladder and they're starting to look around at why it is happening. They didn't care before because they always got "theirs" but not anymore and it's cutting into what they felt entitled to. The share, share alike has a different feel when you're sharing with those who cheated to get some and those who went by the rules are paying the price.

Yup, the cheaters are going to start eating each other if this economy continues as it is, and that will be a good thing.
