    I work from 9 - 4 on Saturdays so I'm out. And, although not necessarily a conflict, just a reminder that we do have a rehearsal that Saturday from 6-9... every Saturday from now until SWN14. LOL

    Pencil me in for this. I'm sure I can also find this as a reason to get out to Rochester to see my parents for my birthday and Mother's Day. They usually attend the Festival at least once.

    The parade itself begins at 1030. Whether or not you can stay for the picnic afterwards, you should be back in plenty of time for rehearsal.
