The Randolph County Democratic Party will have an entry in the parade again this year. We are going to decorate Elworth Cheek’s pretty blue pickup truck with banners and flags and Democratic veterans are asked to ride with Elworth in the parade. Afterwards, attendees are invited to Democratic Party Headquarters for a light meal and a showing of the movie, “Tuskegee Airmen”.
