Summary write up:

Over 3 months of planning for what turned out to be one of the highlight moments for the MWG this year! Everyone had fun at this event. It showed the true meaning of "Esprit De' Corps!"

Thousands of children and adults lined the streets to see the Midwest Garrison of the 501st Legion march through downtown Bartlett.

It will be a day long remembered in the Empire. It saw the end of 50 cases of 5 ounce bags of marshmellows distributed to the children along the parade route. Many an adult will rue the day that the EMPIRE invaded Bartlett, Illinois as their children bounce off the walls till midnight or later from a sugar high!

Quoteable Quotes:

- "Lemme see if I have this right - The Bartlett 4th of July Parade begins with a pre-parade meeting At Irving Park Road and Barrington Road in Hanover Park in the empty Dominic's parking lot behind Blockbuster, McDonald's, and Krispy Kreme."

- "You can follow me if you want to I just need to know where you live excatly, I don't want to be like ray charles driving around glendale heights waving my head in sunglasses."

- "You were all such a huge hit!! You could hear it spread down the parade route that you were coming. The group of kids around me were so excited about getting the marshmellows-much better than the popsicles the BSA tried to hand out."

I was looking through our Garrison's mission reports and found entries for ALL of our adventures at the Bartlett Independence Day parades. This is pretty cool! 2004
