Our 4th of July celebrations. In normal years, the Freedom Run followed by breakfast at a local church, or lodge, then sitting back and watching our Community Days parade through Old Town. Do you know the origin of the Lenexa Louie-Louie Band? In the 1990’s, our daughters were in the SM West Marching Band and we were “Band-Aides”. My wife decided the parade needed a band and recruited our daughters and other band kids with the promise of a T-shirt. The group marched and played the West fight song and Louie-Louie and a tradition was born.
