The Parade route starts at 6th Street and ends at 4th Avenue
It is important to keep a reasonable pace.  Please do not follow too closely to the unit in front of you and stay within a reasonable space in front of the entry you are representing.  To avoid large gaps, please do not get too far out in front of your entry.
When you reach the end of the parade, please take your banner to the Yurs Funeral Home Parking Lot on the right, it's the southwest corner of Main & 5th Avenue.  Volunteers will be at the site to collect your banner.  A Troop 13 Adult Leader will also be there to check you out and to verify parent pick ups.
Please be sure to dress properly for the weather (if possible - wear something Scouting on the outside layer - i.e. Class "A", Troop Sweatshirt, Troop Fleece, etc.).  If you like, there usually is hot chocolate and treats at St. Charles History Museum located at 215 E. Main when you are finished.  It's a nice place to warm up and watch the rest of the parade.

The Wreaths are Coming!  The Wreaths are Coming!

Wreath delivery day is this Saturday, November 19th, at the Gray Willows barn.  ALL SCOUTS ARE REQUIRED TO BE THERE!  We need adults too!  We will meet at 7:45 am to unload the truck, sort products, pick orders and load cars.  We have fine-tuned the process so all will go smoothly and quickly but ONLY IF EVERYONE IS THERE!  As a reminder, all orders MUST be picked up on Saturday as we do not have storage available.  If you cannot pick up your order, you MUST make arrangements for another Scout to get it for you.  The forecast calls for chilly weather, so please dress for the conditions as we will be outside for a few hours.

See you on Saturday!
