It’s August. Kids are headed back to school, Summer vacations are winding down, and I’m getting ready for Parades with El Zaribah Shrine. I’ll be kicking off with the Payson Rodeo Parade August 18, followed by the Kingman parade in September,
Lake Havasu City in October, Anthem and Tempe in November, anywhere from one to three per month. I’ll let you know exact dates, times, and places as the information becomes available.
As Shriners these parades are all done at our own personal expense (transportation, lodging, meals, parade unit equipment, etc) in order to raise public awareness of our Shriner’s Hospitals for Children. Hospitals where no child is ever turned away regardless of ability to pay.
