“Muskegon County Right to Life” in the Fruitport Old Fashioned Days Parade
Join us on Memorial Day, May 28, 2018!
Muskegon County Right to Life has participated in the Fruitport Old Fashioned Days Parade on Memorial Day for over 10 years We began as a small group of 10 or 12 in a parade that remembers those who courageously gave their lives for our freedom.
Parents, Grandparents, children of all ages, and babies in strollers have expanded our group to over 200 people! Some walk, some ride the float, all come and share in our positive and upbeat music and message which has been "I Just want to Celebrate" (Rare Earth), "Speak Life" (TobyMac) and "It's Wonderful Life (Mi Oh My)" from the kids's movie Angry Birds.
This year we provided colorful "It's a Wonderful Life" t-shirts for the children that participated, and we gave away t-shirts along the route with this life affirming message and our website. We also handed out colorful leis and roses with a card that said "It's a Wonderful Life because of you!".
Parades are an opportunity to make more people aware that there is a “Muskegon County Right to Life”! Many people - families, adults, students and children - walk with us, or ride on our float. Our themes and our message have been positive and upbeat, and participation continues to grow. We hope you'll join us next year!
