SATURDAY / TOMORROW / 1st PARADE

We will be meeting in the back parking lot of the Zimmerman High School – Between 8:45 & 9:00.

The parade is scheduled to start at 12:00.  Streets begin closing at 11:00.  There is some construction, but you are able to drive to the school.

T-Shirt:

728 Cadet T-Shirts will be given to each student.  This t-shirt is part of the uniform and Cadets are required to wear this T-Shirt to every parade.*

Shorts:

Form fitting shorts are best – no particular color required.  NO jeans, cargo, or baggy shorts.

Jewelry:

You will be asked to take it off – Leave it at home.

Hair:

Will be tucked up into the Shako.  We will use ponytails, bobby pins and headbands to achieve this, on both girls and boys.

Socks:

Black socks that are required.  Mid-calf and higher – No ankle socks.

Dinkles:

Most kids were them to the parade instead of taking the chance of forgetting them.

Water:

We will have water coolers, but a water bottle never hurts.

Food:

Zimmerman does not feed the kids after the parade.  Please pack a lunch and snack.**

Weather:

Always plan for… “The Show Will Go On”.  Just know that these kids are our #1 priority.  They will not be marching in lightening, hail, during tornado warnings, etc.  If it becomes necessary, parade officials have emergency shelters to take the kids (schools/ churches/ community centers).  If you would like to discuss this topic further, please send a note and someone will be in touch with you.

Volunteers:

If you would like to help at the parade tomorrow, please send an email to Dawn Saxton at  dwsaxton21978@gmail.com .  Only so many people are able to help, so please make sure Dawn has you on the list.

I hope I didn’t forget anything.  If I did, you’ll be hearing from me again  J

Have a Safe Memorial Weekend.    ~ Eileen

*if your cadet has not been given their t-shirt prior to saturday morning, they should wear a black short sleeved t-shirt to Zimmerman.

 

**in the future, after the trailer is set-up, we will have snacks available.
