Thank You Blue
Parade season is underway, and here's one coming up that includes a "Thank You" to the police:
- On Sunday, 12Mar2017 at 1200 hrs, the Northwest Side Irish Parade will be held in Norwood Park. One of the "floats" in this parade will be a group of citizens who support the Police and belong to a group called "Thank You Blue". This group [...] is comprised of citizens from various areas of the City and suburbs who respect and support the Police.
One of the ways we show this support and say thank you is to march in local events such as this years Northwest Side Irish Parade. The founder of this group is former Congressman Joe Walsh who will be leading our contingent. This is strictly a way of saying thank you to the Police and is in no way political. We march with signs that simply say Thank You Blue.
In light of all the anti-police venom being spewed by the msm and on social media particularly regarding the CPD, Joe thought it's time we bring our group to Chicago. We have marched in various suburbs for several years now and have had an outstanding reception and hope to see the same here in Chicago. [...] We would like as many people to join us the Sunday and march with us. The more the merrier. Anyone that supports the Police and wants to participate is welcome. Police Officers from any agency be it local,state or federal, family members, regular citizens, the dog, the cat, you get the idea. We would really like to make a statement about our support for the Police and we can do that by having a huge group of people march with us.
