You all did a great job at the parade this morning.  Thank you to all of you for playing so well and to all the parents for all your help and support.  We just received a phone call from the City of Richardson Parade Committee and they told us that you all won an award at today’s parade.  Congratulations!

If you would like to help us accept the award, please join us at Richardson City Hall by Santa’s Village at 5:00 PM tonight (Saturday, December 2).  Please wear a red shirt and hat just like this morning.
