A Scotchman Fourth of July

Goat_FlagMarch, ride, or watch, but wear your Scotchman Peaks swag!

Each year, from Sandpoint to Noxon, Friends march for wilderness in parades. It’s fun and a great chance to show off your Scotchman t-shirts, hats, bandanas and sweatshirts (we hope you don’t NEED the sweatshirts, though). Sign up to walk or show up in your swag and watch. Every bit of support showed is greatly appreciated.

This year, Phil Degens, our Scotchman Peaks Old Goat of the Year, will be riding on the Republican Womens’ Float with representatives from other nonprofits and civic groups in the Sandpoint parade. Remember to wave, Phil!

We will also have our booth at the Troy Fourth Celebration again, a good chance to meet Lincoln County Friends and invite others to get to know about our proposal.

To sign up for the Sandpoint parade, contact: phil@scotchmanpeaks.org; Clark Fork parade: neilwim@yahoo.com; Heron, Noxon parades: sandy@scotchmanpeaks.org; Troy booth: kristen@scotchmanpeaks.org
