Here is the second tranche of pics from the 2021 Sitka Fourth of July Parade. One of the highlights of this half, which straddles both posts, is the new Yellow Cedar Bench honoring Alaska Civil Rights Leader Elizabeth Peratrovich. The hope is to raise $4,000 to have the City place it in front of the Centennial Building where the Baranof statue once stood. Another highlight is our local newspaper, the Daily Sitka Sentinel, which is still hometown and family owned, a Sitka crown jewel. Brian’s Sitka High Class of 1991 marched as the 30th reunion class, along with kids and grandkids. So Liam and Fiona got to participate in a small town parade. Finally I like that while other organizations throw candy, our grandkids have a Halloween sized haul, Sea Mart Groceries gives out fruit. Thank you Roger and Andrew!
