Due to the potential for rainy weather, the Lions Club will decide by 2pm whether the parade will continue tomorrow or be postponed until next week.
If the parade continues tomorrow: Students should begin meeting at First Baptist Church about 5:00pm. Chorus students have a rehearsal that ends at 5:00pm, so they will need to quickly change and be at FBC by 5:30pm. The parade begins at 6:00pm.
