    Well it is almost that time of the year again, but this year is vastly different.

    YJN is not the active club of years past. I blame that on me, but it can't be helped...I work 70% of my time out of town now (currently back in Winnipeg) and when I come home I want to spend time with Deb and Kaitlyn. It's kind of hard to applogize for that.

    So since YJN is so slow, are there any members still around/left that want to take part in this years parade? I've seen posts form other chapters asking about the event, and I've also gotten PM's.

    Bottom line....do we still have YJN members interested in the parade to make it worth hosting this event?

    Personally I can not say I will even be in town for the event. I will not know till closer to the parade date. But I still vote yes have the event.

    I look forward to the event, and would hate to miss it, and see us miss it. Another yes.

    I know we are not technically part of YJN anymore....but Stephanie and I also vote yes...if this is the last Grape and Wine Parade then so be it, we have enjoyed it every single year and it holds a special place in our lives.

    If you need any help organizing it we will also be willing to help again.

    I need to know the exact date so I can check my availability..cause my schedual is swamped and crazy. But if it's on a day I am actually free, then I say yes too, for me, Dan and the girls.

    Justin and Steph, even though you have moved away, you are still considered members of our group.

    Dimi...the parade is on Saturday September 30th. Hope you guys can make it...would love to see you and the girls. Kaitlyn is now big enough to probably actually play with your girls. :)

    hey great. That is enough notice, I can get the time off most likely. Although I am having surgery sometime in Sept or Oct. Just don't have the date yet. As long as it's not around that time, then I say Dan, myself and the girls will be there. I am sure the three girls will have a great time together now.

    I'm glad to hear that it's the 30th I was worried it would be on the 23rd and conflict with a different event we have down here in Utica, NY.
    I'm sure we'll have folks wanting to come up for this parade again. I'll start some threads on the other boards!

    That sounds good. I guess I better inquire with my dad if his hall is available again. Did it work out last year??

    I am of course interested. Graeme as well. I'd also like to get more 501st out again this year. Have we heard from the other groups in the states?

    I've asked my dad to check the date at the hall to see if it is still available. I will let you know when I find out!

    Sweet maybe we will finally find clues to the national treasure.

    Or better yet Chris I mean Indy could search for the Ark of the Covenant.

    LOL!!!

    My dad confirmed with me that he wrote us in for September 30th. The hall is not a problem.

    Always looking forward to the Grape and Wine parade every year! I'm sure Chris will let you know Buffalo's final count, but Gil, Rob and I are planning on being there.

    I'll be there! It's two days after my birthday, and I booked the day off back in May. Peter said he's probably not coming though.

    I would most definately like to come out this year, The only thing is that September is looking rather sketchy for me since the job that I am at now, my contranct finishes on August 31st and once I do manage to secure a new job, I can't nessacairly say that I will not be working that day.
