It was so much fun setting up and marching in the parade Saturday! There’s nothing cuter than giving little kids candy canes!!!

We do, however, want to hear your feedback about the day! For the next All Team meeting, please bring any ideas you have to improve the float for next year, and ideas for additional tools/supplies you think we should bring and have on hand for the day! Also, we’d like to offer a special “shoutout” to Mr. Dodge for bringing the small space heater that gave us some warmth!!

Original Post:

This year’s Christmas Parade in Manchester will be December 6th.

Team 501 will be doing our annual march down Elm Street!

Bring your team garb (or anything royal blue), your coats, scarves, and maybe umbrellas. It’s always a wild ride and make sure to watch out for Reindeer Poo!

We need float decorations!

We’d love donations of blue and white lights and garland.

Lexx and Lizz also need your help with candycanes and labels!

We need to be at Brady Sullivan Tower at 10:00 with the float.
We will decorate until we are done and then head to Dyn to have lunch, play games, and warm up.
We need to be back to the float for 2:00pm for judging.
The parade starts moving around 4:00 and should be done by 6:00.

We’ll have more details coming out through email in the coming days.

Please Help – We’ve lost our trailer that we’ve been using in years past to show off our robots and Arthur, our giant parade robot. If you know someone with a similar trailer either to borrow or maybe even for sale, let a mentor know.
