  • love the photos and the entries from all lines of business showing their support & the inclusiveness of their companies.

    have to point out that the caption on this photo is hysterical though - these guys would have been from a float relating to freedom from opression, they're not showcasing different jobs!
    The police have their own group walking & I'm pretty sure their uniforms aren't made of silk ;o)
    There were however representatives from all walks of life inc firemen, SES, STA, ambulance service and armed forces.
