Fourth of July in Saxtons River, Vermont

NOTE: Thisis  typical of what happens most years.  There's a new theme each year and parade entries try to match the theme.

Pat Fowler of Village Square Booksellers is Treasurer of the Committee.  If you'd like to be in a future parade or perform as a band or volunteer to help out, she can put you in touch with the right committee member.  We can always use volunteers!
