Oreland - 4th of July Parade

Oreland Fire Department puts on a great Independence day parade. It's exactly what you would expect to see in a Norman Rockwell painting. The streets are lined up with flag waving kids from one to ninety years young. There are marching bands, VFW, firetrucks etc... you name it, they parade it, everything you would expect to see in a old fashion parade.

Oreland's Fire Company Chief Dan Supplee also a CCDV member has invited the CCDV to put their Corvettes in their parade. We have a very large turnout each year, in 2007 we had 38 cars. Don't miss this event it's great.

TIP: For those of you that have never taken part in the parade many folks bring some candy to throw to the children along the parade route. Some people also fix flags onto their Vettes.

WHEN: Friday, July 4th.

TIME: The parade starts at 10:00 am and ends 12:00 pm.

WHERE: CCDV participants will meet at 9:00 am at the ACME parking lot at 1825 Twinning Rd. and Rt. 152 (Limekiln Pike) in Dresher, PA19025

NO SIGN-UP JUST SHOW UP

PERSONAL INVITATION FROM CLUB MEMBER DAN SUPPLEE:
This is a great parade, and draws a huge crowd. As the fire chief in Oreland I will be marching with the Fire Department, but I would love to see you guys there. I extend an invitation to all CCDV members to come back to the fire house after the parade for an open house, free hot dogs, soda and beer after purchasing a comemorative mug.

We can park all the Corvettes along the road in front of the Fire Dept on the 100 Block of Roesch Avenue. Once all the firetrucks have parked we can move all the Corvettes up in front of the Firehouse for display.

I'll drive the pace car for you both. That way you won't have to fight over it.

I'll be there. I never miss this one. I want to get my Oreland Fire Company, Station 700, 100th Anniversary Beer Glass to add to my collection.

This one IS fun.

For Ed's eyes only ..... the 4th of July parade will be held on the 4th. The month will be determined at a later date.

Unhappy

Got an invite to spend the weekend with friends in Margate so we'll be missing the parade this year.

Look forward to seeing all of you and please plan on hanging around at the firehouse after the parade for some refreshments and hot dogs. Had to miss the last meeting so I didn't get a chance to throw in a plug for the parade. Parking will be at the same place as last year.

I love this parade. It's American as "Motherhood and Apple Pie" and I started putting post it notes all over the house to remind me of the date. I even have them in all my cars and my mom's house.

Ed,

We'll all start calling you at 5am to make sure you remember. One question about your post, since when is "Motherhood" an American thing? Maybe you meant as American as Baseball and Apple Pie?

I'll be there for this one. I'll have a new co-pilot this year though since Kelsey is away at camp.
