Ward's 'Families Are Forever' float popular

RACINE, Wisc. — Some 150,000 people in two parades saw the July 4 float sponsored by the Racine Ward, Milwaukee Wisconsin South Stake. The float, entitled "Families are Forever," had a life tree depicting the names of a son, father, mother, grandmother, grandfather and more. The float also featured a pedigree chart, while members on the float represented early settlers. On the back of the float were the words: <a href="http://"Familysearch.org" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">"Familysearch.org, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints," and the toll-free number for the "Together Forever" video.

"We had many positive reviews from local people," said Racine ward member Phillip DeHahn. "As our float passed a local radio station booth along the parade route, they talked about our float, how we have a family history center and went on about family history work in their conversation for about 10 minutes."
