Posters to have a positive messages! We want to bring awareness to our community to the issues that need attention.

We need lots of volunteers to make and bring posters of what you stand for, about 6 volunteers to hold big banners, and about a dozen people to bring empty lawn chairs. Optional: wear patriotic colors and a decorated hat. We suggest coming early and parking near Buckley Park and walking down to the train station for the start. The city will have a street dance after the parade at Buckley Park, so feel free to stay and enjoy. If you want to be a big banner holder, or a empty chair holder, please sign up with Susan at: susan131@aol.com. Thank you.
