from Ellie: The following article highlights our more recent parades that I’m familiar with since moving here in 1996. The article is from the magazine: Havre de Grace ~ the meeting place, dated Spring/Summer 2011. Kellie Boehm was the editor. Sadly, I’ve not been able to find the tape recording.

2017 Havre de Grace Independence Day Commission
The new commission took over the operation of the Havre de Grace July 4/Independence activities, under the able leadership of Christy Silverstein and Taryn Martin, offering a parade, concert, and fireworks on the day of the celebration. They have continued the tradition and again this year we will celebrate with the same sense of community.
In addition, I share with you a video created with images from 2002 – 2018. I think it speaks for itself about the amazing community we have on this very special day. ENJOY – and savor this year’s events. Special thank you to all those involved in making the celebrations possible. THANK YOU!

Let us not ever forget our amazing country and her opportunities when we act as a community of neighbors!Ellie Mencer
