The Exchange Club’s Fourth of July parade was a rip-roaring success, with hundreds of onlookers along Church Road and almost as many decorating floats, golf carts and bicycles to be a part of the show. If you’ve ever doubted demographers’ claims that Lake Highlands has been filling up with adorable young families, you need only check out my photos here.
Robert Walne, graduate of Lake Highlands High School and newly installed president of the Exchange Club, said members were excited to be back after the parade’s pandemic hiatus in 2020.
“The parade is a snapshot of what makes this community so special,” Walne told me. “This long-standing tradition brings neighbors and friends out from all ages for such a fun morning celebrating our country and enjoying our community. From kids decorating bikes to community business and club floats participating along with our LH neighbors lining Church Road, Lake Highlands always enjoys coming out for the 4th of July parade. LH Exchange Club is proud to be a part.”
