Even though we are a fairly new group, we have arranged to participate in seven parades on the Fourth of July. All we need now is for you and your friends to show up at the parade of your choice at the designated times.

Wheaton: Step-off is 10:00. They are asking people to be there at 9 AM, which may be a little too early but there is some pre-parade work to do for folks who can get there early. Be there by 9:30 for sure. The surrounding streets close to cars at 9:00, so plan to park and walk.
