La Mesa Celebrates Old Glory

LA MESA -- On a perfect, sun-drenched morning, bands, civic organizations, an assortment of politicians, merchants and youth groups gathered to march behind the impressive U.S. Marine Corps Band in celebration of patriotism and the flag.

It was a parade filled with energy and good will throughout with local residents at times walking out into the street to thank veterans who were honored throughout the day.

Representatives of the city's upcoming Centennial Celebration in 2012 were also on hand, signing up residents to attend special events which will occur throughout the 2012 year, including a planned special Centennial edition of today's Flag Day Parade a year from now.
