Help DGTDO show off our Democratic strength in local parades this summer!
On the 4th of July, we will be marching along with our float that features our DGTDO banner honoring Red Brownson in two parades. In the morning we will be in the Hinsdale parade. As we have not been in the Hinsdale parade for a few years, and with the very strong Indivisible group in Hinsdale, we want to show Hinsdale the strength of the Resistance by having a very large group of fired-up Dems on parade. This parade steps off at 10:00 and we usually line up about 9:00. We will share information about our line-up position as soon as we receive it.
In the afternoon, we will participate in the Downers Grove July 4th Parade, as we have for many years. Let’s have mobs of DG Dems marching down Main Street in Downers Grove. This parade steps off about 1:00 and we line up about noon near Downers Grove North High. We will provide the exact line-up position as soon as we are notified.
We will have our float in both July 4th parades, which provides seating for those who might have difficulty walking the parade.
Picnic after the parade
Following the Downers Grove Parade on July 4th, we are all invited to a picnic at the home of Chris and Randy Hotchkin, 6810 Carpenter St. in Downers Grove. Our organization will provide the hot dogs and burgers, and salads and Chris will provide beer, wine and soft drinks. Bring along an appetizer or dessert if you can. Not doing the parade? We still want you to join us for the picnic—stop by Chris’s house starting about 3:30.
