·       The Traditional Arcadia Fourth of July Parade registration opens at 7:30 am., for the 8 am neighborhood parade that starts at 60th Street and Calle Tuberia. The focus is honoring our country, out troops, the community and local families. Participants are asked to dress as patriotic as you can. Parade watchers can bring chairs and line up in the neighborhood. Non-melting candy will be tossed to parade watchers.  Free food available prior, during and after the parade.  The Phoenix Fire Dept will hose down the crowd after the parade – if they wish to get wet. Parking available in and around the parade area. Details www.arcadiaparade.com  LD24 participants can contact LD24 Parade Organizer Roger Pongratz.   roger.pongratz@cox.net 

 

·       The Arcadia "Parade" started in 1996 when Johanna Boslin and her family planted flags in her neighbor’s yards on the 4th of July. Bud Katz called to thank her, saying “The flags looked so beautiful, flapping in the breeze. Now, all we need is a parade.” Thus a neighborhood traditional was started. Each year they celebrate those who serve with the Military Order of the Purple Hearts and American Legion Color Guard. This year, the parade is dedicated to Tom Smith, who served Arcadia with passion and integrity for many years. He served his country in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. He was a teacher, the first principal of Ingleside Middle School, an Arizona State Representative and Senator.

·       Congresswoman Martha McSally: The number one priority I hear about from Southern Arizonans is creating more economic opportunity for our region.

This high-priority project is a vital part of Southern Arizona’s future success as a leading international trade and transportation hub. What's more, the entire Arizona delegation signed on with their support of the bill, a reflection of the bill's importance. Bill on the House floor HERE

·       Congresswoman Martha McSally: Southern Arizonans have made tremendous contributions to our nation's military history. From the Buffalo Soldiers stationed at Fort Huachuca, units that made up some of our nation's first all black regiment to the men and women of the 355th Fighter Wing, a unit housed at Davis-Monthan and that's currently deployed overseas. On D-Day, the 355th was one of only two Air Force groups hand-selected to attack key Nazi staging areas around Paris to allow for Allied forces to attack the beaches of Normandy. This weekend, it was a great honor recognize Southern Arizona's proud military heritage, and the men and women currently serving to keep us safe, at Tombstone's "Salute to the Military."
