    BRANDON — The committee charged with the annual Independence Day Celebration is seeking volunteers and ideas for floats for next year’s parade and festivities.

    The committee has also joined forces with the Stephen A. Douglas Birthplace to celebrate Douglas’ bicentennial birthday next summer.

    The theme of 2013 Fourth of July parade and weekend festivities is “Old Home Days.” Historically, Old Home Days in New England are a way to welcome back former residents to their old hometown.

    Brandon wants to bring back as many people who grew up in town, have a connection to the town or can trace their lineage to town.

    The committee has started recruiting marching units and floats for the parade to represent Brandon’s past, present and future.

    To volunteer or for more information, contact the committee at 247-6401 or email info@brandon.org
