12 Nov 11 - The Veterans Day Parade will begin at 11:00. We are number 65 in the line up. We have a trailer with hay bails and will display the Red Hat Chapter banner. I will be in place NLT 10:00 and will walk down to the ASOM parking lot. We can then proceed to the vehicle and meet up with old friends along the way. The ending point is the court house so make arrangements to be picked up there or we can drive back up to the parking lot back of the Husk Ale House, we can discuss this at a later time. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
