Leopards Spring Forth on the 4th

  • July 4, 2013
 

Cars, trucks, bicycles and motorcycles and with red, white and blue streamers and banners began lining up on D Street early in the morning and the anticipation could be felt in the air.

The 2013 La Verne Fourth of July Parade drew hundreds of La Verne citizens to the streets to watch Uncle Sam, Abraham Lincoln and even a five-vehicle procession of University of La Verne vehicles, led by University President Devorah Lieberman and her husband, Roger Auerbach, drive by, tossing treats to the cheering crowds along the 2.5 mile parade route.

“It’s my third year and I look forward for 364 days for this day because this is the city of La Verne,” Lieberman said. “For a week prior to the parade, people are reserving their lawn chairs throughout the city of La Verne and I don’t see that anywhere else in the country. This city comes together and the university is just a part of the city and that we can participate fully makes me happy.”
