Camp Constitution’s float in the annual Alton, NH’s Old Home Week Parade won first place. Over the years, Camp Constitution has had floats in Dedham, MA’s Flag Day Parade, Roslindale Day Parade (Boston, MA), and the annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade in South Boston. This was our second year in the Alton Parade. In addition to the float, Camp Constitution hands out pocket copies of the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence to parade spectators. In today’s parade, we handed out over 300. Like, every other parade, our float and presence at the parades are well-received by parade spectators. The award included a trophy and $150. prize.
Special thanks to Michael and Paulie Heath, Maura Shurtleff, Steve Wanager and his dog Gracie.
