Rhody Parade 2009!

Dear 4-H Members:

It's Rhody Parade time again -
Saturday, May 16, 2008!

Judging starts at 10 am and the
Parade begins officially at 1 pm.

We need all 4-H members to turn out !

Carry the 4-H banner and walk alongside the Fair float!

Please join us no later than 12:15 pm

at the Jefferson County Fair float staging area in Uptown Port Townsend!

If possible, bring fresh long-stemmed cut Rhodies by 10 am to help us decorate the Fair float.
That is the time when the parade entries are judged and the more people there at judging time the better.

To find the Fair float's staging location
Look at the Rhody Parade's line-up that will be printed in The Leader on Wednesday, Mary 13.
Then when you come into town on Saturday there will be a table at the Visitor's Center where you can stop
and find out which street in Uptown is the Fair's staging location.

If you are walking with the Fair float
Dress for the weather. Wear layers, Carry you own water and snacks.
Wear comfy shoes. You will be walking!

Smile! Wave! Help remind everyone along
the parade route to enter things and then to come to the Fair in August. You can also
use cut rhodies, wear them on yourself - carry them - wear them in your hair - pin them to you!

Nothing can be thrown to the people along the parade route.
Animals must be cleaned up after, right at "the time."

Also, get credit for participating in the parade by entering it in your
4-H Recordbook under Community Service or 4-H Promotion!

Hope to see all of you there!
