…And how does

Here’s an offer that’s too good to refuse!!!
The Famous Ames Place 4th of July Marching Band has been asked to headline the 3rd Annual U City Fireman’s Open House, September 13 (Saturday).
The U City Firemen have participated in every Ames Place parade recently. As a thank you, it seems only right to accept. Last year, we played our wonderful selection of patriotic songs, marching the last ½ mile down Delmar to the firehouse. It was amazing! The public adored us! Anyone who can participate is welcome. We especially would like a show of our young people from 6th grade to high school and beyond.
The same music and format as on the 4th will be used, perhaps with a circle march. Also, since we ARE the 4th of July Marching Band, let’s wear our 4th of July garb, so we have another chance to WEAR the stars and stripes. (An Ames Place 4th of July T shirt might be particularly great.)
The parade starts at 11:00 at Midland and Shaftsbury (in the parking lot in Heman Park off Midland) and will ride up Midland to Delmar (in the midst of all the great fire trucks) and up Delmar to the fire station. We’ll have a locked room where instruments can be kept and will have a ride back to the starting point for those who parked near Heman Park. Get there around 10:30am; no later than 10:45am. If you prefer, you can park/walk to the station and catch a ride with the firemen to the starting point of the parade, but you need to arrive at the station no later than 10:15am to do this!
At the fire station there will be tours, rappelling demonstrations, a performance by the precision Dalmatian dogs who somehow demonstrate fire safety, and a “safe house” which the kids can go through to learn how to deal with a house on fire. There will be hot dogs, plastic firemen hats…all the things we associate with fireman picnics.
Call me to sign up (862-2517). I’ll contact you on Friday PM, Sept 12th. Can’t play an instrument? We need volunteers to carry the banner.
This is a great thank you for our excellent fire department as well as great PR for Ames Place. I hope to see you there!
Thanks, Ron Krone
