Joined by SAJAC instructors, they represented Florida Locals 199 (Jacksonville) and 433 (Tampa), South Carolina Local 687 (Charleston Heights), and Tennessee Local 263 (Memphis).

“The first-year apprenticeship class represented their trade with dignity and pride,” reports SAJAC instructor and L-263 member Rodney Evans. Fifty apprentices and four instructors participated in the event, making them one of the largest groups in the parade.
