500 Festival Parade - Another Successful Year!
135 Scouts and adults volunteered to setup and take down chairs during the 2017 500 Festival Parade.
Pioneer District has had a presence at the Parade for many years. Not only does this offer us an opportunity to provide a valuable service to our community, but it offers volunteers a great opportunity to enjoy this nationally recognized and always exciting event along with thousands of other parade patrons. Do you wish you had been able to participate this year? Would you like to participate in 2018? We would love to have you! Just contact John Shurig at (317) 359-3644 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
