Although there we had unusually cool and cloudy weather for July, we enjoyed the Battle Ground Parade! The showers held off just enough to allow the tops down on the convertibles! (This felt a little more like the Veteran’s Day Parade given our jackets and umbrellas!)
Thank you Mustang Club, Earl & Darlene for always taking care of Miss Clark County & Miss Clark County’s Outstanding Teen! You are the BEST!
