March With Aid for Women of Northern Lake County in Gurnee Days Parade!

10101This Sunday, August 10th, is The Gurnee Days Parade, in which Aid for Women will be marching for Life, and is looking for marchers to join them. 

Here is an immediate opportunity for your pro-life feet to witness for Life, and support Aid for Women of Northern Lake County’s Crisis-Pregnancy Center. 

It is a short 12 block route, and the weather promises to be a very pleasant low 80s. 

Here are the Details: Meet at 11:00AM @ line-up position 59. The Dropoff Entry point is at Delany & Grandview and the parade ends at Aid for Women’s office on 4606 Old Grand. The parade will commence at 12 noon. 

As there are no vehicles permitted in the line-up area, unless they are in the parade, people are encouraged to carpool, and  have someone drop them off at the dropoff point. Carol is also offering her house at 4151 Grand as a drop-off point. Other parking may be available at the Mother Rudd House or at the rear of the Gurnee Grade School Building. 

The theme this year for the Gurnee Days parade, is “Little bit Country, Little bit Rock n Roll”, so if you wanna wear your cowboy hat or bandana, or perhaps get your ol poodle skirt out of the moth balls, you can mix it up. 

Also, remember to wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water. 

Gurnee Days Corporation Rules stipulate:   Any bike riders or roller bladders must wear a helmet. Parade participants may not throw ANYTHING as it is hazardous, especially when it involves small children. 

Aid for Women will have “belly flops” to hand out to people sitting on the sidelines; and they are looking for 3 volunteers to help carry a large 8 by 4 foot banner. They will also need some people to carry 2 smaller Aid for Women Banners. 

There will be beverages and sandwiches at the end of the parade route in the Aid for Women office. Mmmmm.

 The covered wagon is in for repairs – so it will NOT be in the parade this year. 

The parade will go on if it rains, and will only be cancelled due to thunder and lightning.
