ATTENTION AVALONIANS: The Twin Cities Pride Parade is TOMORROW MORNING @ 11am! We are float number 63 - right behind Hell's Kitchen-Minneapolis and in front of Transforming Families (MN). While we won't be using the Avalon truck this year, we do have another vehicle pulling a GSA-designed dragon float! The Pride parade groups with floats will be staging in the parking lot on the corner of Hennepin Ave South and 3rd St. South. They will signal us when to turn out and join the parade. If we are directed to line up on the street, just check in at the parking lot and the Pride folks will be able to direct you to our exact location. The parade starts at 11am so it's good to be there by 10:30... or feel free to join us en route. The float will arrive around 9:30am. Students and staff will be participating and handing out Avalon wristbands to parade watchers along the route. Parents, families and friends are all welcome to join us!!! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD - the more the merrier! See you tomorrow morning! :)
