Joliet County


On August 6, 2023, Tina McGarth (Joliet County Moms for America Group Leader) and her group members participated in the community-based Crossroads Parade in Shorewood, Illinois. The theme of the parade was “A Night at the Movies”, so naturally they went with ‘Top Gun’. The reasoning behind this was to incorporate the Moms for America position on patriotism and supporting the military. The float was a jet plane, which included the names of Goose and Maverick from the movie. 

All the moms and kids signed the float, and they even had boy scouts from a neighboring float sign it. The boy scouts were very happy to do so! There were hundreds of people lined up along the parade route and their float got the loudest cheers. Tina quoted, “It was very encouraging and a wonderful way to share who we are as an organization.”
