Well folks, we’re down to the wire for the 47th Annual Arlington Fourth of July Parade!
Heidi Moyer, along with her mother, grandmother, and daughter, representing four generations of Girl Scouts, will be honored as Grand Marshals in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts of America. And congratulations to the winner of the 2012 t-shirt art contest, David S. of Nichols Jr. High. T-shirt sales benefit the local chapter of the Ulster Project and serve to promote the art curriculum in the AISD, as well as promote the Parade. Shirts can be ordered online and at the next General Meeting. They will also be available the day of the Parade in the staging area.
Note that we are moving the June General Meeting from the 3rd floor Council Briefing Room to the Council Chambers on the 1st floor. Signs will direct you to the meeting. June 21 is a MANDATORY meeting for all entries to pick up their Parade packets so they will be allowed entrance into the staging area the morning of the Parade. Don’t forget to DECORATE your parade entry! See you at the meeting and the Parade!
