Fourth of July Parade Float

Columbia Gorge Beekeepers Association won the Grand Prize in the Fourth of July Parade for honoring pollinators as heroes. Suitably-attired in apiary and floral form are Jacquie Barone, left, and Susan Froehlich. A version of this float first made its debut at the Christmas Parade 2016. It was upgraded for the Fourth of July parade in 2017 where it won First Place in the Non-Profit Category. A great team effort for those offering their time to assemble the float and of course those who traveled along during the parade. The greatest joy is having the children ride and walk along side.
