The City of Duarte has been doing a Route 66 parade for the past 15 years.
Each year Duarte II Ward has participated.
For the past several years we have carried an American flag that is 30 feet X 60 feet
This is our group walking down the street from the church getting ready to line up.
Thanks, Simmon's, for the great breakfast.
Getting instructions from Bro. Simmons
Waiting for the parade to start...
The weather cooperated this year.
In years past we've walked on the rain.
We've walked in the blazing heat.
I'll take today's weather - overcast and cool
Craig Stogner was an official helper .

Smile for the camera!
Here is another video of the group folding up the flag.
You can see it takes cooperation to complete the task.
We'll see you next year!
