Memorial Day Parade

Just a reminder, next Monday, May 26th, is the Memorial Day Parade. Participation is highly encouraged by the league and all our sponsors. Obviously, being a Holiday, it's possible you won't be in town; however, please encourage your other coaches and players to participate. If you can’t get a float for your team, then join another team for the day :-) Try to list both teams on float for Sponsor visibility.

So if you’re in town, try and find a truck or trailer for your team. Vehicles should enter by Fletcher street and go behind High School. Be at the High School District Office Entrance/Center Street Elementary Complex starting at 12:30 p.m. Lining up Behind and Between the Schools, NOT in front of schools. We line-up from Youngest to Oldest Age Groups (6U in front, 8U, 10U, etc). The rest of the players should be there about 1pm, so they can decorate your ride.

The Parade starts at 2pm and ends about 3pm at the Legion on Old Ithaca Road. Parade Starts at 2:00 p.m. Parade Route – High School parking lot/Sayre St/S Main Street/Old Ithaca Rd/ to Legion.

The Legion had in Bold Large letters that CANDY must be “Handed out”, no Throwing.. TEAMS NEED ADULT ON BACK OF TRUCK OR ON FLOAT
