EVERYBODY LOVES A PARADE
With the support and
encouragement of the City of Eden Prairie, chamber member Eden Prairie Lions
Club is organizing the first citywide parade in 55 years. It will be held the
morning of May 30th, in conjunction with the Lions Club Schooner Days
celebration that Memorial Day weekend. The route will run from the west side of
the high school along Valley View Road finishing on Highway 4 at Luther Way.
The parade theme is, “We Are Many, United We Are One.” You may have seen the front-page article on the parade in the December 19th
issue of the Eden Prairie News. We would be delighted to have you, your
business or your organization participate in the parade. Eden Prairie schools,
students and elected officials can participate at no charge. For others there
is a small charge for participation with a special rate for Eden Prairie
businesses and non-profits.
Participation could be by a unit in the parade, as a sponsor
of Schooner Days which includes marketing placements for your firm and a chance
to be in the parade at no additional charge, or as a volunteer to assist with
staging and assisting on parade day.
