Post 2001 – 4th of July Independence Day Parade Leesburg


You are invited to participate as part of our American Legion Post 2001 in the Leesburg 4th of July Parade.

The parade is Monday 4 July and every one must be at Ida Lee park by 0930. The parade starts at 10:00 am at Ida Lee Park and goes down King Street into Leesburg.

Uniform is Legion cap (if you have one) and polo shirt (Legion polo if you have one, otherwise red, white, or blue would be great) and slacks (no jeans please).

In the past we have lined up near the front of the parade and we will have the Post colors and the American flag. We anticipate help from some youth groups as well.

I will send further details in the next few days.

This is a fun event and it is amazing to walk down King Street with all the folks cheering and waiving to us.

Hope you can participate!

A special thanks to my fellow legionnaires for their support tonight at the Ashburn Knights vs Warrenton game.
You have my respect and gratitude. I know the young men, parents and fans enjoyed the Americanism displayed tonight. And, hopefully, many thought about our freedoms and the sacrifices made by our veterans and military.
Chuck- again- thanks for taking the lead.
Color Guard- without practice- you did great.
Father Hinkle your thoughtful prayer was really appreciated. Unfortunately, God had other weather plans for tonight.
Al- many thanks to you for throwing the first pitch. Here are the first pictures coming in. I’m sure there will be more to come.
All the best,
Jim Linn
