Madrone Adventist School Float Wins First Place in Labor Day Parade
The Madrone Adventist School float won first place in the children's division at the Illinois Valley–Cave Junction Labor Day Parade.
Students and their parents rode on the patriotic themed float, which was constructed on a 18-wheeler flatbed truck. The school board members marched beside the float, giving out gift bags that contained pencils, erasers, candies, and an announcement for the opening of the Madrone Adventist School.
A church friend, Russell Baker, who has been seriously ill for several months, was invited to ride in the cab of the truck with his oxygen tank. Russ was truly elated and enjoyed frequently blowing the air horns. He was a true grand marshall for the parade!
