12/6/14 Bloomington-Normal Christmas Parade

Postby Runnin'6712 » Sun Dec 14, 2014 10:15 pm

On December 6, the Midwest Garrison made our 3rd straight appearance in the 85th Annual Bloomington-Normal Christmas Parade. The parade route was approximately 2 miles long starting in Normal and finishing in downtown Bloomington. Luckily this year the weather was much warmer than last year which brought out a bigger crowd. The crowd reaction was great and everyone had a great time! A big thank you for everyone that came down from Chicagoland and other areas of central Illinois for making our portion of the parade a success. It was much, much appreciated!

List of participants:
Rick Devine 6712 (TK) (coordinator)
Adriane Bean 4541 (TK)
Chip Childress 9965 (SL)
Ted Ruler 36285 (TI)
Tyler Meier 50488 (DZ)
Dylan Van Horn 71613 (Rebel)
Scott Miller 91110 (TA)
Kim Worley 12108 (DZ)
Hawk Worley 12109 (ID)
Faith Worley CDZ0816 (Jawa)
Mike Mathews 13140 (DZ)
Mrs. Mathews (Jawa)

And a special thanks to: Amy & Megan Devine and Megan's friend Alyssa for handing out candy canes along the route and Tracey Devine for taking pictures. And Ted Ruler for loaning his camera to Tracey so she could take pictures during the parade.

Also, somewhat of a milestone for me.....it was my 100th troop!
