[ARCHIVED] Milton Independence Day Parade Winners

On the 4th of July, approximately 95 parade entrants participated in the 2014 Milton Independence Day Parade, presented by Air Products. The Celebrate Milton Committee gives trophies for first, second, and third place for “Best Use of Theme.” The theme this year was “Honoring America’s Heroes.” Although the judging was very difficult, as all parade floats were once again exceptional, the parade committee is proud to announce the following best use of theme float award winners:

First Place: The Glory Wagon
Second Place: Dick Kath Vintage Stock Car Racing
Third Place: Consolidated 4-H

The Glory Wagon started when Mike Jones marched in the Milton parade as a color guard. When he walked down the streets of Milton, he counted only four flags in the crowd. He decided to work with other community members on raising funds to purchase flags to distribute to the crowd so Veterans would see the flags when they walked by during the parade. Now, he and other Veterans, hand out 5,000 flags every 4th of July in Milton.

Dick Kath drove a 1957 Chevy Stock Car that is a WWII Prisoner of War tribute to his father, Albert H. Kath Jr. He was captured in the first wave of the Battle of the Bulge in Germany. Albert passed away in 2011.

Consolidated 4-H recreated the Korean War Memorial on their float with the words “Freedom is Not Free.” The group meets the first Monday of each month at the Conslidated Elementary School gym at 7 p.m. There are 78 members of the club and 52 families.

The Celebrate Milton Committee appreciates all of the hard work from the parade volunteers and the parade entrants that made the 2014 parade a success.
