On December 7, members from the Midwest Garrison and Rebel Legion once again participated in the 84th Annual Bloomington-Normal Christmas Parade. The parade route was approximately 2 miles long starting in Normal and finishing in downtown Bloomington. When the parade started the temperature was a brisk 12 F but luckily the sun was out so it wasn’t that bad. The crowd reaction was great and everyone had a great time! Also, a BIG Thank You to Doug Wallace and his wife for letting us use their home for changing and keeping warm before the parade! It was extremely appreciated by all of us!! After the parade we went to the Pub II for food and beverages and of course, fun!

List of participants:
Rick Devine 6712 (TK) (coordinator)
Steve Szyndrowski 3052 (RFT)
Mark Berry 4265 (TB)
Chip Childress 9965 (SL)
Ryan Summers 2429 (SL)
Doug Wallace 92711 (TI)
