At the parade

Letter to the editor

Posted: Wednesday, August 11, 2004

In response to Mr. Steve White's letter to the Juneau Empire dated July 18, yes Mr. White did submit an entry form as follows: Group Name, "Commander In Chief" and Group Sponsor, "Alaskans Supporting Our Troops."

Yes, Mr. White did approach the check-in stand and said his entry was "Commander in Chief." On the parade line-up list Mr. White was listed as an "Alaskan Supporting Our Troops."

If Mr. White had had a copy of his entry form with him (as requested on the entry form), this situation would have resolved itself - at the time Mr. White left the area he did not have a parade line-up number.

The Juneau Fourth of July Committee wishes to announce the tentative parade theme for 2005: "Freedom of Speech."
