It will probably be the last time for awhile that Hillary will be able to march in her hometown parade. Next year, she will be leading ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery. Chappaqua showed itself to be solidly behind her today. The local grassroots group, Chappaqua Friends of Hillary, gathered to distribute stickers and cupcakes and to sign up volunteers. Dawn Evans Greenberg organized the effort, and her team did a great job! Up and down South Greeley, folks were sporting Hillary stickers as they cheered the parade: the vets, the scouts, the bands, the pipers, the musketeers, the first responders, the soccer kids, Governor Cuomo, and both Clintons.
The morning had been iffy. It had rained – no poured. But as folks began setting up, the drizzle stopped and the sun began trying to break through.
The Hillary tent was where the action was. Everyone wanted to pose with the cutout of Hillary. One little girl about three-years-old called to the Hillary figure as she walked past. “Hillary!” There were homemade signs, lots of Hillary gear, and kids- lots of kids and lots of dogs!
Then came the parade!
The Revolutionary War contingent shot off their muskets every 1000 yards or so – deafening. The kids loved it!
As the parade ended everyone drifted to the ceremonies at the monument on the green.
The sun came out. The roads dried up. Hillary was happy to see us. She said “Thank you, so much,” and put two thumbs up.
It seems there are questions about the Navy officer next to Hillary. He is Oscar Flores, U.S. Navy Ret., who worked in the White House during the first Clinton administration and is employed by them now in his retirement. If you have read any of the many emails Hillary released, you will see his name on some of them. The Clinton family attended his retirement celebration some years ago. He is a trusted friend and member of the household and deserving of our thanks and respect for his service. So, please no more malarkey. He has been there all along. He is an officer and a gentleman. Please be respectful and thank him for his service!
