Join the Parade!

It's almost July and you know what that means - the Eatonville 4th of July Parade, Like always, Mount Rainier National Park will take part in this year's parade.

This year we will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act.  Some of the signs we carry this year will say "Wilderness is . . ."  I would like you to finish that sentence with 1, 2, or 3 words.  Email your "Wilderness is . . ." to me (Jim_Ross{at} and it could be featured in the parade.

To make this a true celebration, we also need park staff and volunteers, including scouts.  We need flag wavers, sign carriers, "banner babes" (banner dudes?), and folks smiling, waving, and giving high fives.  If you normally wear a uniform, please do so for the parade. If you don't have a uniform dress in "wilderness attire".  Family members are also welcome to join.
If you wish to take part, we gather at 11:30 AM, usually on Pennsylvania Ave., near Lynch St., one block west of the football stadium at Eatonville High School.  The exact spot is different each year and is not known until we arrive.  Just look around for some ranger hats.  For more information contact Jim Ross.
Please join us!
