The Belgrade Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1825, Saboe-Levorson Post, was well-represented in the parade. In addition to the group marching smartly, several rode a wagon decked with flags. Pictured are (from left): Al Wiechmann, DeWayne Lien, Marvin Imsdahl, Jerry Rapp, Gene Wolf and James Thoen.
Celebrating the 125th anniversary of Belgrade’s founding in a somewhat different way was Linda Foster of Minneapolis. Foster and other family members were hosting a garage sale at the home of her mother, Ramona Mohs. Mohs has lived in Belgrade for 84 years.
This flashy mini sports car was driven by Robert Wold, son of Ray and Connie of Belgrade. His ride was sponsored by NAPA Auto Parts.
