2022 July 4th Parade
Thank you to our entire team of TLWC walkers, banner carriers, decorators, drivers and helpers for the incredible showing at Monument's 4th of July Parade!
The float decorators were rained out twice the evening before the parade so they met early the morning of the parade to put the float together and decorate it.
Our parade float, decorated to “Honor our Educators” was a major success. Koko Pavich and Erin Contreras carried our banner into the cheering crowds. We had 14 members who handed out candy and 4 who rode on the float refilling candy bags. We want to extend a HUGE thank you to our generous members who donated bags of candy. We used it all!
Also, a huge shout out to Gail Wittman, Mille Town and Ann Cook who were in charge of the “Lost Children” booth in downtown Monument.
Thousands of people enjoyed this amazing hometown parade, and we are so proud to have been part of this Monument tradition. Many thanks to Linda Vernon, Charlie Ann Hayes, and Carol Gaskill for the hours they spent coordinating logistics and to Lori Forman for navigating our float safely through the parade. A big shout out to Randy Vernon, Fred Bjork and Donald Congdon whose assistance with our float was invaluable.

Caring in Action provides bag lunches for working homeless neighbors in need at the Springs Rescue Mission. Each month we make 40 to 50 lunches that include a sandwich, chips, fruit, drink, and sweet treat. We then deliver them to the mission to be given to those who are heading out to work. For more information on how you can help, members can contact leaders Charlie Ann Hayes or Ann Cook. Contact details are on the SOS/CIA Home Page.
The May Luncheon Business Meeting and Celebration was held at Wedgewood Event Center and a wonderful time was had by all. No program was presented as we had much business to attend to! The 2022-2023 slate of Executive Board Officers was voted on as well as the 2022 slate of Grantees.
