Indiana Supreme Court Justice Steven David is the grand marshal of Lebanon’s Fourth of July parade.
“I’m honored and humbled to have been asked to play some small role in what has become a significant tradition for Boone County,” David said. “If not the best, it’s got to be one of the best Fourth of July parades in the state of Indiana.”
David was Boone Circuit Court judge from 1994 until Gov. Mitch Daniels appointed him the state’s 106th supreme court justice, in October 2010. He was elected to the position in November 2012.
David was in the parade last year, when he rode in a horse-drawn carriage as part of the Boone County Courthouse centennial celebration.
David was the keynote speaker for the re-dedication, 100 years after a ceremony presided over by U.S. Vice President Charles W. Fairbanks, who was a native Hoosier. David arrived at the re-dedication in the carriage.
He and several others wore 1912-era clothing, despite 101-degree temperatures and a heat index in the swoon category, for the re-dedication.
“Those wool suits were hot,” David said.
