An Inside Look: ADB's Impact on the Annie Malone May Day Parade

Sunday was a perfect day for the 114th annual Annie Malone May Day Parade in Downtown St. Louis. The parade is one of the oldest and largest in the area, drawing big crowds to watch bands, floats, and dignitaries. This year's theme focused on connecting physical health to mental health and wellness. The parade serves as the largest fundraiser for the Annie Malone organization, which is dedicated to improving the lives of children and families through social services, educational programs, and advocacy. 

Since its inception in 1910, the parade has grown to more than 3,500 participants and 30,000 spectators. Our ADB Community and ADB Together team members joined in the parade, and some of us were even featured on TV. Special thanks to our ADB Culture Committee members, Andrew Spitznagle and Dave Drury, for leading these efforts. We also extend our gratitude to our drivers and volunteers—Marty De La Torre, Nic Green, Delisa Duncan, Nolan Wheeler, Anthony Washington, Sarah Alvarado, Rhett Barth, Emily Mays, Haywood Sutton, and Dylan Brady as well as family and friends —for their dedication in organizing and promoting this well-attended annual event. We were even featured on the local news as the big ADB trucks and trailers came through the main stage during the parade. Outstanding work everyone on making such an impact in the community and getting the ADB name out there. Thank you!
