Next was a convertible with Dianne and Rusty Ayers.
But, then, this last entry in Crystal Lake’s 4th of July Parade made me smile.
It was members of the McHenry County Defenders, aka, Environmental Defenders of McHenry County, with carrying bags and picking up garbage.
There was a Falcon Waste and Recycling truck with a big banner. I guess that’s where the full trash bags ended up.
The clean-up crew was deployed along both sides of the parade route.
Spectators were more than willing to contribute waste products.
And, that’s all there was.

The day after the parade, I saw that not everything left behind had made the Defenders’ trash bags.
There were a couple of Mark Kirk yard signs left behind.
A smaller piece of debris was on the sidewalk outside the Schwinn Bike shop, The Village Peddler. It was from McHenry County Democrats.
And, finally, I noticed this lost bracelet.
Some little girl must have been sad when she noticed that she had lost it.
