    The 2014 theme, Faith in the Future, reflects a chance to shine a light on hopes, dreams and plans for months and years to come. It also challenges consideration of how decisions now will bend and shape what is to come.

    There is no entry fee to be in the parade, but waiver forms are required to be signed by all who march or ride in the parade. With registration questions, contact Lion Gene Niednagel at 988-6865 or niednagel@insightbb.com.

    This is the 11th year the Lions have hosted the parade. In addition to the Spring Blossom Parade, Lion community service projects include Adopt a Highway, Village Street Sweepers, Adopt a River and River Watch, Independence Day Fireworks, eyeglass and hearing-aid collection, vision screening for both children and adults, scholarships and grants.

    Others are invited to join the Lions men and women who give of their time to benefit the county they love.
