Reminder: Old Settlers Days Parade and July Meeting



Just a reminder that we will have a float in the Old Settlers Days parade tomorrow, and we need as many patriots as possible to join us on the float.  We will meet at Columbia City High School at 4:00pm, and the parade starts at 5:00pm.  Come out and show your patriotic spirit!


Also, don’t forget that our July meeting is this Tuesday, July 1st.  We will have several speakers, and many military vets and active service people with us.  Come out and show your support and appreciation for our military.  Shake their hands and tell them, “Welcome home!”  It’s never too late to say that to someone in the military.

God Bless America,

Old Settler’s Days Parade



Once again, the Whitley County Patriots have a float in the Old Settler’s Days Parade on Saturday, June 28th at 5pm.  We need to pack the float with as many people as we can to make a good showing at the parade.  Come on out and have fun while we blast patriotic music from the sound system on our float!  We will start lining up at Columbia City High School at 4pm.

God Bless America,

WCP Float to be in Three Rivers Festival Parade

This Saturday, the WCP float will be in the Fort Wayne Three Rivers Festival Parade.  Come join us!

We have several options to get there:

  • We will be meeting up at Arcola Elementary School at 7:30 AM, and carpooling to the parade marshalling area.
  • You can park at Dick Goodwin’s place of business at 2725 Rousseau (near Covington/Freeman in Fort Wayne) and ride the float to the parade.  Call Dick at 260-466-7581 if you need directions.  The float leaves at 6:30 AM.
  • If you wish to get on the parade float in the staging area, it will be near West Main and Runnion.  Parking in that area will be a challenge.  Please arrive by 8:00 AM.  The earlier you get there, the easier it will be to park.

This is the first time we have participated in the TRF Parade, so we have a few guidelines to remember:

  • Our float is honoring the military; no large political signs may be carried, but we can hand out any information we wish.
  • If we hand out candy, it must be handed out, not thrown.
  • This parade is 4.5  miles long and may take 4 hours to complete…you may want to bring a folding chair so you can sit down periodically on the float.
  • If you choose to walk, there is a set of stairs on the back of the float that should allow you to get on the float and take a break…it’s a long walk.
  • The current forecast says it might rain…keep an eye on the weather and prepare accordingly.

We have finally been able to enter the Three Rivers Festival Parade in Fort Wayne!  Marshalling information is not yet available, so I’ll send out an update when we get it.
