July 4, 2019, was sunny and warm, a perfect day for LaGrange's 36th annual children's 4th of July parade. The origin of this celebration was the idea of the wife of Rotarian Jim Boyd, Annette Mills Boyd. This parade was established to give the children of LaGrange an opportunity to participate in a festive celebration of the birth of our great nation.
Each year this children's parade is well received by all. The parade route is lined with families and neighbors. The beneficiaries must include all of the parade participants plus the spectators. The parade was also covered by local media.
