June 16, 1994|By JONI GUHNE

"Twenty Years of Grand Tradition" is the theme of this year's annual Greater Severna Park Fourth of July Parade.

The anniversary parade, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, begins at 10 a.m. led by past grand marshals riding in vintage convertibles.

World War I veteran James M. Rice of American Legion Post 175 has invited all veterans to join him by walking or riding in the parade.

The chamber, touting its "Buy It and Fly It" campaign, is selling American flags, Maryland flags and American flag wind socks. The flags are on display at Academy Imprints.

Information about the parade and the flags is available at Chesapeake Bagel Bakery, Radio Shack in the Severna Park Mall, Severna Park Inn Liquors and Teetertotter Ltd., or by calling 647-8402 or 987-6625.

Massaglia replaces William Cresswell who retires after eight years as board president.
