Morden Corn & Apple Festival Parade, August 27, Saturday

It was an excellent parade we had at the Morden Corn & Apple Parade on August 27, Saturday. It was the last parade of the summer - the biggest (around 135 floats) and longest (a little over one hour).
The GM and the Masonic Family again had the honor of going in front of the Khartum Shriners.
Here, the DeMolays and I are waiting for the step-off (start of the parade).

I again rode in the beautiful convertible of Noble Ben Kushner, with Noble Wendell Loewen in his usual role as navigator and waver.

The DGM, RWB Al Hadley, was accompanied by the Grand Director of Ceremonies, RWB Junn Manalang in one of the Masons Care Vans, driven by RWB Baldur Johnson.

The SGW, RWB Doug Webster, rode in the other Masons Care Van, this one driven by Bro Howie Morrow.

Following was the beautiful Float of the Manitoba Masonic Family, which was beautifully decorated by JPQ Debbie Clairmont, designated as the Grand Decorator of the GL of Manitoba. Representatives of the various Concordant & Appendant Masonic Bodies.

The contingent of the Khartum Shriners was led by the Pipes & Drums while the Motorcycle Escort preceded the Potentate.

The last, but certainly not the least, entry is the Editorial Without Words

Again, another excellent parade - slightly cloudy weather, great crowd, colorful floats, great bands, etc.
