One of the fun things in American life is parades. They are a feel good event where everyone is welcome to watch groups of every imaginable kind show their talents or just identify there presence. Political groups have long been a part of parades. Fayette County Republicans too have a long and proud history of parade participations.
Ia HR 55 Congerssman Darrel Branhagen has reserved for our use his Republican elephant mascot. Miss Liberty will be standing on her usual trailer mounted platform, joining with us for these scheduled events and more through the year.

Please join in and help us honor these community activities, it is rewarding and enjoyable. We could use someone not marching but in the crowd to help take photos to post here.
