SAR Float awarded MOST CREATIVE by Kiwanis Club of Leesburg
The Sgt Maj John Champe and Col. James Wood II Chapters combined to participate in the 66th annual Leesburg Kiwanis Halloween Parade. SAR members dispersed approximately 150# of candy and two bushels of apples to children lining North King Street. Sgt Maj John Champe (SMJC) prospective member Warner Workman provided a twenty-eight-foot float decorated in a Patriotic style, supplemented with Halloween decorations such as pumpkins, bales of straw, lighted lanterns, skeletons, and much more. The float was awarded “MOST CREATIVE” by the Leesburg Kiwanis Club, sponsor of the event. A Skeleton crew consisted of Dale Corey’s (CJW-II) face painted to look like a skull and SMJC Ken Bonner and Barry Schwoerer (SMJC) wore skull masks. Four members of the SMJC Chapter participated along with four members of the CJW-II chapter. Mrs. Ken Bonner from Lanes Mill chapter NSDAR marched with the team wearing colonial attire. Participating SAR members donated canned goods and cereal to the Kiwanis for the Loudoun Interfaith Relief Food Pantry..
