Falls Church is fortunate to have a very high ranking official serve as Grand Marshal of The City of Falls Church 27th Annual Memorial Day Parade and Festival, May 26, and he happens to be a city resident. The Secretary of the United States Army, the Honorable Pete Geren, will serve as Grand Marshal and he says the honor is all his. “It’s an important day of celebration in the life of our nation,” he shares. “It is fitting that Falls Church should stop and pay tribute. I am honored to be a part of it.” This is the seventh year that he and his family have attended the Memorial Day festivities in Falls Church. “I have always enjoyed the Falls Church parade and community involvement — from young people to senior citizens,” he says. Mr. Geren says that the City

of Falls Church does more to honor Memorial Day than most major cities, possibly due to the rich tradition of military service by its citizens, many of whom have paid the ultimate price. “A high number of Falls Church citizens were killed in our nation’s wars,” he explains. “The city’s celebration has grown from the appreciation of sacrifice from our soldiers.” The parade will start at 2 p.m. in front of the community center, which features a plaque bearing the names of those who have died in service to their country. Mr. Geren became the 20th Secretary of the Army on July 16, 2007, following his nomination by President George W. Bush and confirmation by the United States Senate. As Secretary he is responsible for all matters pertaining to the Army, including manpower, personnel, reserves, installations, environmental issues, weapons systems, equipment acquisition, communications

Other posts he held include serving as Special Assistant to the Secretary of Defense, to which he was named in 2001, followed by a position as Acting Secretary of the Air Force in 2005. Before joining the Department of Defense, Mr. Geren worked as an attorney and businessman in Fort Worth, Texas. From 1989 through

1997, he was a member of the U.S. Congress representing the 12th Congressional District. While in Congress, he served on the Armed Services, Science and Technology Committee

and the Public Works and Transportation Committee. He earned a BA from the University of Texas in 1974 and a JD from the University of Texas Law School in 1978.

Since the Shriners’ Kena 500 unit started performing in the Falls Church City Memorial Day Parade, they have been one of its undisputed highlights. Their sleek mini-Corvettes, executing precision maneuvers, combined with their ever-sostylish fezzes, give them a perfect combination of supreme goofiness and undeniable coolness. It’s impossible to see them drive their cars without wanting to drive one yourself very, very badly. You could probably count the number of people in Falls Church who wouldn’t jump at a chance to drive one of those cars on one hand. Those lucky few who do get to drive the cars are Shriners, an appended body of the Masonic organization, and as one would expect, they are incredibly enthusiastic about the cars they drive. The Kena 500, so named because it is part of the Kena (pronounced “Kee-na”) Shrine which makes up the Shriner’s presence in Northern Virginia, has been in existence since two Shriners managed to get their hands on the minuscule automobiles. The cars are “Chevy Juniors,” which were made by Chevrolet to promote their new “Stingray” car model in the 1960s. Two original Kena 500 members happened to be

the owners of Fairfax’s Farrish Automotive, and when they got wind of the car’s existence, managed to buy them off Chevrolet when the company was done with them. “Since then the Shriners have been collecting miniCorvettes and created the Kena 500,” says 45-year-old Jeff St. Onge, a contractor with the Department of Defense and driver of car number 20. The Chevy Juniors pack a walloping five horsepower engine and top out at around thirty five miles an hour — though it seems a lot faster when riding only a few inches from the ground. The engine also doesn’t have to haul much, just a metal frame, a light plastic covering and the drivers. Most of the cars you see in the parade are 35 years old. The series of heart-in-mouth weaves, tight turns and assorted other maneuvers that the Kena 500 pulls off during their parade routine require a steady hand and iron nerves ... and a bit of practice. “We practice every Tuesday in the Shrine parking lot,” says Shelby Chandler, driver of the Kena 500’s “recovery vehicle,” used in cases when their maneuvers weren’t quite as precise as was needed. These practice sessions prepare the 22-member outfit for the 25 parades and events they perform in annually. The

awe-inspiring feats of Kena 500 can’t be contained to U.S. Boarders. In addition to performing all around the country, since their creation, they have performed in France and England as well. Practice season runs from May to August of each year, and its purpose is not just to prepare the Shriners for their parade-day exhibitions. “Practice stops because we enter two conventions. At the conventions we have unit competitions,” says St. Onge. While every event that the Kena 500 performs in is certainly important, the Mid Atlantic and South Atlantic regional intra-Shrine competitions are the most important in terms of bragging rights. “Practice is basically driving us toward the competition,” says St. Onge. Auto enthusiasts would appreciate the wide variety of mini-cars on display at the competitions, with the Stingrays serving as just the tip of the iceberg. “In our division there are normally Prowlers, Cobras, little Model T’s, each individual shrine temple has its own car,” says Chris Decker, an RFID Engineer and driver of car number 29. The first part of each competition, besides the Shriners playing mean but good-natured tricks on one another, is a rig
