    Justin and I have just returned from the Grape and Wine Festival office where we enrolled YJN to be in the annual Pen Centre Grande Parade.

    The Parade date is set for Saturday, 24 September.
    We have also put the invite out to other chapters (Rochester, Syracuse, Buffalo, Toronto and London).
    If there is anyone we have missed please let us know. We want to make sure that everyone is included.

    We will post with more information as we get it planned.

    Thanks! :)
    *****Update #1*****

    Change of location: This year we have been given the opportunity to use the Masonic Lodge in St. Catharines for before and after the parade. The terms of use for the hall include the need of at least 5 YJN members to help clean up after the festivities.

    I suppose I will attend if I'm in the area. And I'll talk to pops about use of the school again, I can't see it being a problem.

    Just so there is no confusion...

    I'll be there to help at the parade. Deb and Kaitlyn will be going to her cousins wedding.

    With the club using the mason lodge Deb and I thought it best that I be there to help make sure everything is taken care of regarding the hall.
    Also...
    My truck will again be used in the parade (once we double check the paperwork) for those who would rather ride.

    I'm coming, and may be bringing Peter, that's an unknown at this time. I'll bring a bean salad for the potluck.

    as for costume, I'll be Jocasta Nu, and I'll bring some other odd costume pieces (Like Jar Jar and Darth Maul masks, and various lightsabers.)

    So far from the 501st we have myself and Nick, and three others (Roy, Colin, and Kyp). Still waiting to hear back from a few others, but count on another Imperial invasion ;)

    If nothing crazy comes up I'll likely come to St. Catharines for the day, but I don't have a costume so I won't actually be in the parade.

    Hey...I think I can make it, but I don't think I can walk the length of the parade. (Hard to say at this point). So I can bring something, and help clean up :)

    I used to post as "Darth Pestilence" and go by Amy/Amethyst, if anyone is wondering who I am :)

    if we can get a truck it wont be a problem.

    Ironic I could get my dads truck but its got a cap thats a pain to come off.

    I am coming by the way. All the way from little old Albany.
    kinda a tradition for me now.


    and I might be bringing something from another club down under as well.

    Hey guys is it possible we can get a Niagara shirt to give to them with all of your signatures on them.

    Then one of their members could wear it in their parade or on a visit to a childrens hospital.
