Plan for Sunday

Tomorrow, Sunday, May 14. the plan is to meet at Holliday Flowers, 440 Monroe, at 10 AM to load the truck. After that we will head to the river and start load-in at our booth, S-339. If you can help, please come out.

UPDATE: Staging at Holliday Flowers moved to tonight (Wednesday, May 10)

Due to availability we have had to move pulling equipment and staging at Holliday Flowers to tonight, Wednesday, May 10, starting around 6 PM. Holliday is at 440 Monroe in The Edge District.

I (Paul) have some free Lyft rides, so I am going to arrange a Lyft departing from the Silly Goose in the Downtown core at 6. Anyone who wants to meet there and ride along is welcome to join.

If you can make it, please do. Once again, the more people we have, the quicker we get this done. Thanks everyone!
