The Westland Area Business Association hosted its annual Independence Day Parade and Celebration on June 29. For close to an hour, more than 25 parade entries brought cheer, smiles, and tons of goodies to the hundreds of residents and neighboring guests who lined up along West Broad Street to see the popular event. Among the masses who were seen showcasing their patriotic pride with their American flags and festive clothing was Roy Vaught Jr. The Galloway resident says he tries to dress accordingly to celebrate the nation’s Independence Day.
