Info about

2017 Iron Mountain / Kingsford Fourth of July Parade

To any DCCC member and former student of Mrs. Hogan: Even if you are not singing with us for the summer you are more than welcome to be in the parade -- we have room for only 2 or 3 more people in the trailer, so let me know if you need to ride in it. Just show up if you can walk alongside the float.

July 4th Parade
Meet by Donna's Dance Studio on Pyle Drive in Kingsford. Wear red, white, and blue. Bring a small folding chair if you will need to sit on the float. Four people can use the stools already on the float. We are singing "You're a Grand Old Flag" and "God Bless America." Memorize the lyrics if possible. Print them for yourself if you need them. Or use this site if you have a cellular-data device (e.g., an iPhone). We will have small megaphones to project our voices.

7:30 a.m. finish decorating.
8:00 a.m. meet by this time so we can get in the line-up. If you arrive late you may have to look for us on Pyle drive.
9:00 a.m. parade begins. The parade ends at SuperOne in Iron Mountain, across from the V.A. campus. We will put as many people in the trailer and truck as possible for the ride back to Pyle Drive, though you might want to arrange to be picked up at SuperOne.
You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev'ry heart beats true
'Neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,  
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.
(Twice through -- slow down at the end.)


God Bless America, 
Land that I love. 
Stand beside her, and guide her 
Thru the night with a light from above. 
From the mountains, to the prairies, 
To the oceans, white with foam 
God bless America, My home sweet home.
(Twice through -- slow down at the end.)
