Lincoln Highway Days Parade

The Story County Republicans will be participating in the Lincoln Highway Days Parade on Saturday, August 23rd in Nevada. We will have a float very similar to what we used in the Ames 4th of July parade. We need lots of people to show up and help make a great showing again. Please make every effort to attend – whether it’s tossing candy, handing out candidate material, carrying our large candidate stake signs, or simply wearing a candidate’s t-shirt and waving to the crowd, every little bit helps.

The parade begins at 10:00 AM, with line-up at 9:00 AM. We need volunteers to arrive by 8:30 AM in order to help setup the float if possible. We will be meeting and lining up on the south side of the old Donnelly building (between 12th and 15th St. and M Avenue) in Nevada.
