Cave Junction Students Join Labor Day Parade

November 01, 2012 | Patty Hyland

Each year at the Labor Day Celebration Parade in Cave Junction, Ore., the Madrone Adventist Elementary School enters a decorated float, usually depicting a patriotic theme.

Willie Whitchurch, the head teacher's husband, owns a large semitruck and trailer that he drives in the parade. School members enjoy decorating the truck and wearing costumes as they ride along. The judges carefully look over the parade float, and spectators stand up, shout and clap as the truck loaded with students and staff passes. School board members walk beside the truck, throwing bags of candy with literature and invitations to visit the school.

Everyone has a great time as they give the community a glimpse of Christian education in action.
