Citizen's 4th of July Committee
To represent all those who unselfishly donate their time and guidance to our youth, The Citizen's Committee for July 4th Events unanimously chose Bud Brand and George D. Paddock, both of Superior, as the 2013 Parade Grand Marshals.
Bud has coached youth baseball for 27 years, George 45 years. Both men have coached and worked as scorekeepers for the Rookie Basketball Association for more than 20 years. Additionally, George has been involved with YMCA youth activities as a basketball coach and a camp instructor. Bud has been also involved with YMCA youth sports as well as Junior Olympics. Both men have many more areas in which they volunteer and both are active in their churches so when you see either of these men take a minute to shake their hand and tell them thanks for all they do.
We thank these men and all those who unselfishly give their time to our youth and ultimately to our community.
Due to construction on Tower Avenue, we will be staging on Catlin Ave by the High School. The parade again will start at 11 am. The parade will start at 28th and Catlin Ave, west on 28th to Hammond, South on Hammond to the Middle School.The car show will be in East End due to the Tower Ave construction ( more info to follow).

History of the 4th of July Committee
In 1996, there was no parade, fire works or any other community-wide event. With that knowledge, a small group of dedicated citizens had the idea of collecting monetary donations so they could organize some events for the 4th. A small amount of money was raised, enough to send out mailers advertising the parade and looking for any and all to build a float, bring their horses or whatever they wanted to join the parade. In a following year, the group added a car show to the day's activities and that turned out to be a huge success and still is. Fireworks were added next and each subsequent year sees a bigger and better show. Several of the same people that started this event are still working to make the 4th the special day that it is. The committee begins planning In January, discussing various themes and nominations for Grand Marshal(s). Our themes have ranged from “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” which encompassed a food drive to “It’s A Grand Old Flag” when small USA flags were handed out. Choosing a Grand Marshal(s) is the result of nominations of community members who have given their time and talents to the betterment of this community.
Committee meetings are open to anyone and new members are warmly welcomed! Meetings are currently held the third Wednesday of each month at 6:00 P.M. Meetings are at VIP on Tower Ave
