The Glazier Way Parade



The whole neighborhood joins the procession on bikes, scooters, strollers, and wagons decorated with red, white, and blue. We bike down together as a family, stopping to visit with neighbors and friends who live a little further down. As we ride past Mr. Bentley's old house on Bardstown, we remember how he used to dress in full uniform and salute as the whole parade went by.

Once at the park, everyone settles down quickly as the names of all the Michigan servicemen who were killed in action this past year are read aloud. The Scouts line up to watch the color guard. A Clague student we know plays Taps. Then all the neighborhood children swarm onto the doughnuts before dispersing again out to the bright blue play structures.
