Tolono Fun Day Parade

Please arrive at Beth and Mike's House at 9 am to decorate your vehicle (if you need the address, just send us a private message). At 10 am, we'll depart for our parade line up location; the parade actually starts at 11 am. We live along the parade route so if you have folks who would rather not ride in the parade, they are welcome to stay at our house and watch it go by ... just bring your lawn chairs! After the parade, we'll have a cookout and our June monthly meeting. We'll provide burgers, hot dogs/brats, and drinks ... if you want to bring a side dish, that would be great (Andrew, I'll make your party potatoes :-)!) Decorations are your responsibility; however, the club will provide candy to throw. Just please RSVP by June 23rd so we know how many vehicles to plan for.
