West Virginia

"What makes this different than others is the people."

SHEPERDSTOWN, W.Va. (WDVM)—Shepherdstown’s Rotary Club hosted their 2019 Independence Day Parade and a community wide picnic Thursday morning.

Hundreds of locals gathered in the streets to watch community floats, historical re-enactments and to meet their local government officials. 0ver 60 organizations participated in the parade which led to a community wide picnic afterwards. 

Rotary member David Milijorie said what makes the parade different than others is the community spirit it shows off.

“Even though this is a small, unique community, it has a history going back to 150 years.” said Milijorie. “But especially the people themselves who want to take part and be a part of this community and even make it a better community.”

The Rotary Club hopes to continue the tradition for many years to come.
