Monday, May 27th, is Memorial Day, and there will be a parade down Orange Drive at 10am, with a Memorial Service at 11am in the Bergeron Rodeo Arena. We plan to convoy to the event from my workshop at 9:30am, and plan to have BBQ lunch immediately after the service. As you know, the local Second Infantry Division Reenactors are invited and have occasionally accompanied us to this event. If possible, a 21-gun salute will be performed (but unlikely, based on the last few occasions). FFC Contact - Fred Perkins

Thursday, July 4th is the big City of Plantation Independence Day parade (down Broward Blvd.). The parade steps off at 9am, so we must be staged absolutely no later than 8:30am at the Westgate Shopping Center (NW corner of US 441 and Broward Blvd). If you are interested in convoying to the setup area, a number of us will be leaving from my workshop at 8:00am sharp. Otherwise, meet us at the set-up area. This is a long (distance wise) parade and well-attended! It is likely, but not certain, that we are going to the Davie 4th Celebration, which usually occurs right after the parade.
