Fort McHenry Composite Squadron Demonstrates Community Pride at Arbutus 4th of July Parade

By First Lieutenant William Kool

ARBUTUS, Maryland – Arbutus was the location of a spectacular Baltimore area Independence Day celebration on Monday, July 4, 2011. Following an outstanding turnout in 2010, members of the Maryland Wing and Fort McHenry Composite Squadron (FMCS) of the Civil Air Patrol were again invited to participate in the annual parade. Thousands of spectators lined the one mile route along Oregon Avenue and East Drive to watch color guards, civic and community groups, floats, bands, drum and bugle corps, steppers, cheerleaders, and emergency equipment make their way to the finish line.

The CAP contingent included a sharp formation of cadets marching in precision, senior members handing out “goodies” sporting the Drug Demand Reduction (DDR) “Better Things to do than Drugs”  message to spectators, the crowd-pleasing antics of CAP’s 10-foot inflatable “Cadet Ken”, the colorful Maryland Wing DDR truck, and the “CAP mini-jet” on loan from another unit.
