    Ok, thanks to TK42Tom, we have a location to use for the parade prep/after party.

    Location: Alexandra Elementary School
    84 Henry St. St. Catharines

    Date: Sat. September 27
    Time: 9am (11am parade start)- 5pm

    TK42Tom has posted a link with a map to the school. Make sure you copy and paste the whole link as clicking on it gives you the wrong location. Remember to get there early as the roads will be closed.

    As usual, a potluck dinner will follow the parade. We do not have access to a fridge (at the moment) so we either need to refrain from hot/cold foods, or have them arranged to be brought later. We may also just order several pizzas. Please RSVP ASAP with what foods you will bring. If anyone has coolers we can use for drinks, please bring those as well. We also ask that everyone bring $10 to cover the cost of the school, the cost of food and for a donation to Gillian's Place.

    If I have forgotton anything, I will update this post as we go. See everyone on the 27th!

    I'm not sure if I can stay for the lunch or not, which is fine with me because of my many allergies. Either way though, I'll bring either a bean salad or a jello of some sort.

    The link is being stubborn, but here it is, to the mapquest location of Alexandra School in St. Catharines:

    http://www.mapquest.com/maps?name=Alexandra+Elementary+School&city=St+Catharines&state=ON&address=84+Henry+St&zipcode=L2R+5V4&country=CA&latitude=43.168697&longitude=-79.249305&geocode=ADDRESS

    If it doesn't show up properly, the entire link address may need to be copied and pasted into your address bar. :)

    I'd like to plan and make it out again for grape and wine. New costume to boot. I'm canceling some other plans I had this week so I know I have enough money to make it out. I need some socialization with you guys in the very least. Very selfish reasons for sure. :)

    Make sure you copy and paste the link for the map. If you just click on it, it gives you the wrong location.

    I am sorry that I can not attend this year :( ... but just so you know, I have posted this event to the Rebel Legion. I am not sure if anyone will be coming, but now they know, and I hope that next year the Rebels will be there in force! ;)

    You're not coming? :_| We'll miss you for sure! Hopefully there is a little better balance this year, as the rebels were sadly outnumbered last year. I'm still trying to talk my husband into coming with me.

    I'll probably bring some pinwheel sandwiches.

    Isn't that the way it always goes....the rebels are outnumbered, and yet triumph in the end? :)

    The weather is not looking good, and if it is raining I won't march. My costume is not made for the weather and getting soaked will not help my health anyway.

    Has any consideration been made to what we should do in case the weather is nasty?

    The school is already booked. We may as well use it rain or shine.

    If indeed the forecast is for rain on Saturday (which looks likely), how will this affect those coming in from out of town?

    If I can march in a downpour with bronchitis, I can show up for light showers when I'm healthy.

    We're getting ready to leave Rochester now and should be hitting the road a little after 7am.
    We'll be bringing cookies for the pot luck.

    Thanks to everyone who came out today. We had a great time today, and made a few bucks for Gillian's Place while we were at it. As well, thanks to Tom for getting the school for us (and cleaning it too =D=).

    It was a lot of fun! It's great to see everyone again, since most people I only see on a yearly basis.
