    Garrison Tyranus has been invited back to the Annandale Fall
    Festival Parade on Columbia Pike in Annandale, VA on 10/29/05 at 10 AM-
    12 PM, and we'd like to invite you to join us!

    As you may recall, we won a First Place award when we marched last
    year, and a photo of the parade was part of an article on Garrison
    Tyranus that made it into Bantha Tracks magazine on

    I'm willing to host the pre-parade preparation at my house again this
    year, and provide donuts and drinks for the marchers.

    Since the parade is right before Halloween, it is traditional to
    throw candy to the kids in the crowd during the parade. Any
    donations of candy would be appreciated.

    If there's interest, we could do a costumed presentation of cell
    phones that we collected in the 501st Cell Phone Charity Drive so far
    this year to The Body Shop store at Tysons Corner Mall after the
    parade, and then go out for lunch.

    If anyone has old cell phones that they would like to donate for the
    drive, please contact me by e-mail at lfrye @ (omit spaces).
    The Body Shop stores refurbish the cell phones, and Verizon Wireless
    provides free emergency 911 service. The phones are donated to
    shelters for battered women for use as an emergency 911 phone so the
    women can call for help if they are threatened.

    If you're interested in participating, please respond on the board
    or send me an e-mail and I'll add you to our list. Thanks!

    I've always had fun at the parades - hopefully, we'll make it out for this one, but it's too soon for me to say right now.

    Garrison Tyranus is confirmed to march in the parade- please let me know if you'll be able to join us on Saturday, 10/29/05! We can use costumed marchers or non-costumed assistants (such as someone to drive my mini-van or extra people to hand out candy to the kids along the parade route). Thanks- I hope you can join us!

    Lori, it was nice meeting you at the Annandale Parade. My oldest son and his two friends (the 3 little clone troopers) were just thrilled to be part of the group picture, and are looking forward to seeing the pix online. Could you post a hyperlink to them here on the Galactic Senate BB once you get them up? That would be great! My middle son is gonna be sorry that he didn't come! (He's got a great Darth Vader costume, too!) But he and his Dad stayed home with my sick little daughter. (She's going to be what she calls "a girl Yoda" for Halloween!)
