Contact Rose to order your SLIA windbreaker.  Her correct email is in the attached newsletter.  Remember all parents planning to march in the parade must wear a green SLIA Wind breaker.
 
Those marching in the parade must stay behind the truck unless they are guarding a tire.  If you wish to take pictures, you may run along the side, take your pictures, and then return to the back of the truck.  This if for everyone's safety.
