More than a hundred Red Cross units were active in the state, carrying out peacetime activities that included public health nursing and providing classes for new Mainers. In this sketch for the float, a Red Cross worker stands in front of a giant Red Cross, with ribbons streaming down to the women marching alongside. The float was contributed by the American Red Cross.
