It's that time of year again.  Time to decorate the Jeep in lights, lot of lights (Christmas theme), buy way too much candy and participate in the Centerville Christmas Parade.  The parade starts at 7:00 pm and we have to be in place at Thompson Middle School no later than 6:15 pm.  Entry is one (1) new, unwrapped toy to be donated to Toys 4 Tots.  You are more than welcome to donate more than one, but that is the minimum per jeep. 

Jeeps will meet at the Best Buy parking lot at 4:00 pm to finish the last minute decorations.  We will leave the parking lot to convoy over to the school at 5:30 pm.  If you are unable to make to Best Buy before we leave, meet us at the school.  Let the parade folks know that you with the Warner Robins Jeep Club and they should let you through.

There are some changes to the rules this year that everyone needs to be aware of:

1.  Only adults may throw candy from vehicles and they prefer it be the passenger(s) not the driver.  They do not want children throwing candy from the vehicle.  You need to throw the candy as far away from the vehicle as possible.
2.  No headlights/fog lights.  Only running lights. 
3.  If you will be playing music, loud enough for the crowd to hear, please play Christmas music.

Last year we went to dinner after the parade and it was a great time.  And I would like to see us do that again.  And I suggest we go to Margaritas on 96.  Will we have to make a reservation?

Anyway, really looking forward to this event and hope to see you participating.  Don't forget, we are building the float that morning.

AND, just to add to the new rules for this year, they want us to also have walkers for the parade route to assist with keeping children away from the Jeeps.  The walkers can throw candy, in fact its preferred that they do.  I think if we have 5 or 6 people to walk, we will be good.

Centerville parade committee is waiting til tomorrow to make a determination due to weather threat on Saturday.  At that time they will also determine if the event will be rescheduled. 

As soon as I hear something, I will pass it on.

As of right now but the weather isn’t looking much better than last weekend.  Keep checking back for any updates.

Y’all, regardless we will not be in the parade. Sierra is being admitted for Appendicitis and we are looking at surgery in a couple of hours.

Thanks Russ.  We are still talking to the doc, getting more information but it’s looking like Sierra wants it removed.
