All we have to is show up with a voucher and order dinner. Attached are vouchers. I will print some off and bring it to Monday night’s meeting. We may use the vouchers for TO-GO orders, but the sales from gift card purchases are excluded. The more people we distribute vouchers to, the higher our attendance and the higher the donation will be! Thank you for your support!
11/29/2017 - Parade Details - The information is here on the Miracle on Main Street Holiday Parade. We are to meet on Sunday December 3, 2017 starting at 4:45 At Maplewood Elementary School. The parade is going to form on Judy Young Drive, which is the street that runs along the side of Maplewood between Monroe and Maplewood. There is a 5K race on Sunday immediately before the parade, so there will likely be street closings in the area, and travel by vehicle may take longer than usual. They are requesting that we park in the Municipal parking lot behind Ace Hardware and form over at the school from there. The parade is scheduled to start at 5:30.
They are requesting everyone to think bright lights and color to make the parade a festive and cheery event. So wear your brightest colors and bring colorful lights to make yourself seen and bright. The parade is not a long event. It goes from Monroe Street at Judy Young drive to Main Street, left on Main, to Erie Street, left on Erie Street to Phillips, and then Phillips back to Maplewood. There is no tree lighting ceremony in the parade this year. The delay for the tree lighting added time to the parade last year, but that will not be happening this year. We will be handing out candy – no throwing candy, only handing it to the parade watchers.
So bring your cats and dogs, elephants and camels, all decorated with lights and costumes, and dress brightly and well-lit to participate in the parade. We hope to see you all there.
