The time has come the Walrus said, to talk of a parade!
It is July and once again we are gearing up for the annual Honor America Days Parade. First of all I would like to thank all of you for helping out over the last several years and I would like to ask if you would be willing to join again this year. I am trying to staff 14 divisions and the reviewing stand as usual. We are critical to the success and safety of this event. We close the roads, we are part of the parade, we are part of the team!
The traditional thank you gift is available again this year, reserved seating tickets to the concert and fireworks on the lawn of Ft. Stanwix at 8PM that evening.
For those of you with kids or grandkids that would like to accompany you in the parade feel free, this is a family friendly event and there is tons of candy thrown along the route. If you have kids with you, I will generally place you towards the end so the kids get to see most of the parade. Please let me know. Also if you have any special request to have a particular group in your division, let me know. I do my best to accommodate it.
Thank you for all your hard work and dedication!
