Juneau Alaska's 2014 4TH OF JULY PARADE


 The Theme for the 2014 Parade is; "I LOVE A PARADE"


The 4th of July Committee Proudly announces the 2014 Parade Grand Marshal:


Mr. Garrison was born in 1923. He was adopted by the Garrisons. His grandfather had a ba

nd and got him interested in music at a young age. Dick started playing the baritone and then switched to the trombone.


During WWII, while working for ACS communications in Seattle, he was sent to Alaska. There he learned the IBM Communications System, the only means of communication in Alaska.  The Teletype was a big deal, 60 words per minute. Dick’s fiancé joined him Alaska where they were married. Four sons later, he was sent to Adak to maintain the system.  During the war, his dance band played for celebrities and organizations and entertained the army boys at Duck creek.


Dick played his trombone in the Fourth of July Parade Marching Band every year for the past 60 years. He was the past Salmon Derby Chairman and fished in every Derby for the past 57 years.


He is still playing the trombone and likes to go on cruises. “It’s the only place to ballroom dance anymore.”
