Annual Independence Day Parade and Patriotic Program delights
It was pure red, white, and blue hometown Americana in the City of Heath as the community celebrated July 4 with the Annual Independence Day Parade and Patriotic Program in the park afterwards.
During the program, Mayor Kelson Elam presented the parade awards and honored attending veterans. Pastor Mark Wilford of the First Baptist Church of Heath led the invocation, Boy Scout Troop 989 posted the colors, and a live barbershop quartet sang the national anthem and other American favorites. And everyone cooled down with free popsicles, ice cold water, and mini blueberry, cherry, apple, and buttermilk pies.
The City thanks the Special Events Board and volunteers, parade participants, veterans/active military, sponsors, and staff including Public Works and the Department of Public Safety, who make this community tradition happen!
