Levon Helm's annual participation in New Paltz (NY) Memorial Day parade.

Thanks to Butch & Barrie Dener, we just received a couple more pics from this past weekend's annual New Paltz (NY) Memorial Day parade. Both Butch & Levon participate in this event every year. These pics depict how Levon & Helmland's inviting nature is not only contained to Levon & Sandy Helm's estate, but remotely as well.

One pic shows Levon chauffering the lovely Mrs. Bova (as he does so annually), the parade's only Vietnam-era Gold Star Mother. We have included a link to the American Gold Star Mothers, Inc. Gold Star Mothers are moms who have lost a son or daughter to a war.

The other pic includes three Helmlanders - Tony LoBue (Levon's webmaster, among other duties) far left, Butch just behind Tony & Levon mingling w/ two military gents.
An event such as this is one of the gazillion reasons we love these guys.
