1997, May - Memorial Day
4th Annual Dacula Memorial Day Parade
In 1997 the parade had again grown to over 40 organizations or groups represented. The 5K run registered over 250 participants with the proceeds again going to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief. This shows that this parade and 5K run are growing in leaps and bounds! The parade was even broadcast on a local cable television channel.
We have received much publicity in local are newspapers such as the Atlanta Journal Gwinnett Extra, the Gwinnett Daily Post, The Gwinnett Herald, and the All Around Town. This year we want to make the 1998 Memorial Day Parade even bigger and better by including as many people from Dacula and it's surrounding area as possible!
Some of the participants in the parade over the last four years have been Company D, 1st Infantry Division from the National Guard Armory in Lawrenceville, the Army Reserve 718th Engineer Company, the 357th Corp Support Battalion, the Gwinnett Fallen Heroes, Sons of the Confederates re-enactors, the 530th Air Force Band, restored WWII military vehicles, Parkview High School ROTC Color Guard, the Daughters of the American Revolution, the VFW Post in Lawrenceville, the Loganville American Legion Post, the American Red Cross, the Dacula High School Band, Lanier Middle School Band, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, local beauty queens, and many other individuals and organizations.
