09/05: Labor Day Parade

Post  Ginger Spite on Thu Aug 25, 2011 7:41 pm

We are signed up to participate in the Labor Day Parade on Monday, September 5th. I know this is an event heavy weekend. But parades are a lot of fun, and a great publicity opportunity for us!

We need to meet on Front and Prairie Street at 10:00 am. Mark, if you want to bring your truck again, that would be great. We will also need candy to throw to the children, but at this parade we can only throw candy if we are skating or walking, not from the truck.

Here's the sign up:

Thanks everyone!

Mark and me were talking and Bloomington-Normal doesn't allow throwing of candy. but we can hand out flyers, stickers and it would be cool if we could get pencils made with our logo, if we have time....

Bloomington-Normal doesn't allow people to throw candy from the car, but the parade organizers said that candy can be handed out by hand, so maybe the skaters will able to toss candy. I'm getting clarification on that now.

Swary but we don't have the extra funds for the pencils or stickers at the moment. Unless someone wants to donate their own mula to buy these items.

Yeah, you can totally give out candy, I did it last year. I will be in the parade with Miller Park Neighbors, so can't skate with the Missfits. Can I represent by wearing my skates though?

If we each buy a bag of assorted candy, we should be good to go, right?

another idea of stuff to pass out... those little missfit schedule things we've had at the merch table recently? maybe if we had one with all of our upcoming fundraisers and events and could be passing them out so ppl would come support us? just a thought. not sure who's making them and how, but if a folding party is needed, i could come help!

What's going on at the Wednesday practice? Will everyone be up the whole time, or will there be a time when some of us aren't scrimmaging?

I can bring a bunch of unfolded schedules - we could get there early and fold, or if there's going to be a downtime for some people, we could fold them then.

I will be late to practice tonight (already told ACJ), so I will be more than happy to help fold when I get there (parent night for Mina's class).

Just wondering the when and where of meeting before the parade. Did I miss the info on this thread...?

**Deerrrrrrrp. Just saw the info.

Talking tonight about the parade at IBC:
I have 2 boxes of Freez-E Pop popsicles I will donate to anyone who wants to hand them out. People love them and they'll go fast. We were thinking maybe hand them out the first 1/2 and then candy after you run out? But we need someone who has a large freezer to take them. I can bring them sunday to practice/humane society event for whoever wants to take them. they need to freeze over night. Also, wondering if anyone has a wagon to pull the cooler which would hold the popsicles. Or you could possibly put it in the truck so you don't have to continue to pull it once its empty. I can't do the parade sadly, so anyone who is interested give a shout!

This really is a great idea, so if anyone has a wagon, a cooler, freezer space, or a willingness to pull the popsicle wagon please post here before Saturday night, so Ice can know whether she should haul the Polar Pops from Mendota-LaSalle-Peru-Ottawa-Etc.
