||Dan Wilkinson Rides in Style at the July 4th Festivities in Castalia, NC
Dan Wilkinson was a speaker at the fourth of July festivities this year in Castalia, NC. He spoke about the price the signers of the Declaration of Independence paid for their courage in standing up against the British, and the responsibility each American has to protect and defend our great nation.
The farmers of the area designed a float for Wilkinson, the farm News Director of WRAL-TV and Dir. of Ag.Productions for the Capitol AgriBusiness Networks, to ride on during the parade.
The float, which was pulled by a giant John Deere 4640, was a rare and classic antique John Deere tractor surrounded by local farm products. Joining him on the float were his children Daniel and Kasiey, and his wife Barbara.
“I’m honored by the float,” Dan said, “Nothing compares to a small town celebration where everybody in town turns out and where the spirit of America can still be felt.”
