Fourth of July Parade

Happy summer, everyone! Are there any families that would be interested in walking in the Westerville 4th of July parade with the schools? It would be fun if we had a small group representing Hawthorne and especially older kids should be able to tolerate the talk. If anyone is interested, let us know by Friday, the 10th and I will share the details when I know more. Email Thanks!
