Aquadog swimmers and family members (all are encouraged and welcome!) will once again walk in the Kirksville Fourth of July parade on Monday, July 4th.  Swimmers will line up between 3:00-3:30pm (location tba), and the parade begins at 4:00pm.  This event is always a lot of fun for swimmers, coaches, and families!

Please bring some swim-themed goodies to hand out along the parade route.  Suggestions include:  swim noodles, swim toys, goggles, liquid freeze-pop popsicle tubes, and, the best idea of all, some of your old swim magazines!  (You know, those magazines you get from being a member of USA Swimming but that your swimmer probably doesn't need to hang onto...?)  Good places to find discount swim items at the beginning of July are the clearance section of Walmart or the local "dollar" stores.  These items will be tagged with Aquadogs information and distributed to spectators/children during the parade.

Also, swimmers and families are encouraged to wear their Aquadog apparel and/or red-white-blue clothing!

This year, parade plans are being managed by our Treasurer, Keith Harrison (thanks Keith!!).  If you have any questions or need more information, you can reach Keith at
