    Nope, deadline was 1/31, so I think we've got a while to wait still.

    Yeah, I would love to do something like that, but I'm too far away to get up there for one day--I will try to catch you guys in the parade on tv (or, is it televised locally?)

    Got the most anti-climatic letter today about the St. Patrick's parade. Said we'd here back by the second week in February.

    That's crazy! You'd figure they would give people more notice in the case of building a float. I don't know how long it takes to build a float, but 30 or so days, doesn't seem like alot. I know we're not building one, but you know someone is I'm sure. I would want more notice if I was going to build a float.

    I guess most people have it ready to go to a point. There was a spot for pictures of your float on the app. But I agree with you, more notice would be grand.

    Well I could have a letter waiting at home. If we get in it'll all get done, trust me.

    So...that'd be a no then? Oh well. I'm pretty sure we could get into the Fairview Heights Homecoming Parade @ Mayish. They pretty much let anyone into that.[face_laugh]

    But even though we didn't get into this parade...we are planning to visit three children hospitals during the Regional Meeting in June, two of which are already set with times...so everyone can plan on that service!! Matter of fact, the more the merrier.. :D

    If I supply the wagon will somebody pull me through the parade? LOL! I don't think I could walk for an entire parade route. I have trouble walking up and down the stairs. Ugh! :D
