Over 150 high school seniors who live in the Village have signed up for a drive-by salute this coming Thursday, the 28th. Before that, on Tuesday and into Wednesday, Village personnel will deliver a yard sign and mini swag-bag to all registrants. Please display your sign prominently in your yard. On Thursday, beginning at 10 am, keep an eye and ear out for a procession led by Mayor Cunningham to wind down your street. This is a procession expected to last several hours, and we will get to everyone. Can't wait to see you! All participants should have received an email containing details.
