Sandy Blanton and her supporters enjoyed walking in the 182nd “Oldest Continuous 4th of July Parade in America” in Pekin, Indiana.

I’m so pleased to have the support of local law enforcement! I was very proud to work with the Indiana Sheriff’s Association on legislation to save Indiana counties money when inmates must be cared for in hospitals.
This year’s Dogwood Festival parade theme was, “My hometown is…” To me, hometown is all about friends, family, and tradition.
We want to preserve the unique personality of all small towns in Indiana. There’s no place like home!
A big thanks to the teachers who helped out with our parade entry! It was so much fun.
