FORT MADISON – A meeting to continue planning for the 110th annual Charlie Korschgen 4th of July Kiddie Parade will be held, Sunday, April 24 at 4:30 pm at the Loyal Order of Moose Family Center.
L. D. “Andy” Andrews, general chairman of the event, knows he will always have parade participants to celebrate our independence but worries about manpower and funding to keep the “Oldest Parade of its type in the Nation” going.
The funding for the parade is small compared to other projects as only $2,000 is needed to buy trophies, participant ribbons, prize money, posters, etc. Donations should be mailed to Kiddie Parade, PO Box 243, Fort Madison, Iowa 52627.
If you are unable to attend this meeting, two other meetings will be scheduled in next few months in preparation for the parade on July 4, 2022.
If willing to help with the planning visit the Charlie Korschgen Fourth of July Kiddie Parade face book, attend this meeting or contact Andy Andrews at 319-371-5379.
