For its Annual fourth of July Parade, the Kiwanis Club of Danville highlighted the 100 Birthday of The American Legion. Danville’s annual parade typically draws 30,000-40,000 people and 2019 was no exception. This parade is one of the largest July 4th Parade’s in Northern California.
The Kiwanis Club coordinated with Commander Eric Ardell and Mt. Diablo Post 246.  Ardell arranged for a 1919 Ford Touring Car to carry Grand Marshall American Legion Past National Commander Dale Barnett and his wife Donna who flew in from Georgia to be a part of this big event.
Also riding in the parade representing the Department of California were Past Department Commander Gary Leach, Department Judge Advocate Autrey James, and Area Two Vice Commander Dave Jackson.  Representing the Detachment of California was Boys State Chief Counselor and Detachment Children and Youth Commission Chairman Tim Aboudara, Sr.  Bob Fish, Trustee of the USS Hornet Museum, also joined dressed in an astronaut suit.
A post color guard of members Michelle Lee, Bob Sada, and Mark Heinemann plus George May of Post 29 (In vintage WWI uniform) led the contingent.
Vintage military vehicles were provided by the MVCC, Military Vehicle Club of California.  BevMo also sponsored Post 246 to their participation.
