Excitement filled the air as residents, tenants, family members, Kids Country Child Care and Learning Center as well as Country Manor Staff from all across campus were treated to a creative collection of parade entries and participants which were made up of community members, volunteers and Country Manor Employees. The parade was packed full of colorful costuming and clever themes. This popular and highly anticipated event proved to be a crowd pleaser during the patriotic-themed week on campus.Flags from the Sartell Legion, Boy Scout Troop #11 and 1941 Chevrolet Weapons Carrier from Rice Legion proudly lead the parade with their flags and patriotic spirit. Freedom Flights Inc. (a hot-air-balloon carrier) created a spectacular glow as their flame made their way through the route. The celebration for America continued as the shiny Classic Cars from Pantowners Car Club continued the momentum for the excitement during picture-perfect parade weather complete with blue skies, mild temperature and warm sunshine for all to enjoy.
There was no shortage of fun along the way thanks to the staff members who brought an abundance of energy to the parade route with their outgoing personalities. The warm-hearted nursing staff rode in a pontoon trailer, enthusiastically waving to their beloved residents; the Champion Rehab staff graced the audience, well-rehearsed, with their best efforts as a traditional marching band, and the Beauty Shop even got involved with a sport-themed float in celebration of great American summer fun. The tradition carried on as the hard-working maintenance crew did impressive tricks and maneuvers with various motorized campus equipment and in vehicles. Applause could be heard as the brand new Country Manor Shuttle made a grand entrance which was recently purchased and made possible by the Country Manor Foundation’s fundraising efforts.
In true Country Manor spirit, all departments got involved with decorating pick-up trucks with the seasonal themes which are carried out in activities throughout the year and can been seen all around campus. The Spiritual Care department featured Jeb Reiter using his talents, engaging the audience playing the guitar in the back of a festively decorated convertible. The children from Kids Country Child Care and learning Center were first spectators who were treated to the sights and sounds of all the floats and entertainment and then took their turn marching enthusiastically, waving with smiles and laughter as they brought up the tail end of the line-up along with Uncle Sam, Elvis and Marilyn Monroe characters and the sweet foundation therapy babies all dressed in their Fourth Of July best.
