By SW Strong!
The Southwest Neighborhood Assembly’s Emergency Preparedness Task Force, commonly known as SW Strong! Seeks volunteers to join the annual July Fourth parade in the Palisades neighborhood of Northwest DC. To join, please contact Task Force Co-Chair Ben Curran at (202) 294-7043 or Benimon@hotmail.com.
SW Strong! was established in 2011 to promote individual, family and community emergency preparedness in SW Washington DC. The theme of this year’s July Fourth parade float is “Disaster Prevention & Fighting Climate Change.” Several disaster preparedness and environmental community groups are expected to join, as is a live band. Parade marchers will be provided with water and candy to give away to the crowd. Festive patriotic wear is encouraged, and the parade ends with a large community picnic.
