As the Patriotic Degree, our Knights participate in local and area patriotic events. Our next event is the Caldwell Community Independence Day Parade on July 4th.
Caldwell is a very small rural community near Rougemont. We will join the Durham Assembly for the parade that forms at the Caldwell Volunteer Fire Station 10:15 a.m. and starts at 11 a.m. at NC Hwy 57 at Guess Road.
Our group leads the parade and, therefore, is first to finish. We then gather along the roadway by the community center to watch the nearly one hour parade come by.
There are lots of floats, horses, trucks, cars, antique vehicles, farm equipment, bicycles, lots of kids and tossed candy.
Our members and their families are invited to join local veterans for a light picnic. Please bring something to share. Hot dogs, hamburgers, and cold water is provided by the members of Chapel Hill Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9100.
