On July 3, we pulled the trailer and it's awkward framework to my mother in-laws home in town. We knew it would not withstand the rigors of 9 miles of country roads after it was decorated. It was getting pretty exciting by this point as we were not sure who might arrive a day early to help decorate. Jim and Mrs Jim arrived and then Jerry with his passenger Nora from Indiana. We had several visitors stop in. One of note was Terry Anderson, my editor for the Midwest Producer Magazine.
Whilst looking at the photos remember, everyone was to bring a poster to apply to the float.
The top photo: Jerry brought the ingredients for his poster and sat down to make it under supervision of Marilyn and her Mom. Her Mom is the original "Maxine."
Middle photo: The lovely Nora waiting for 'inspiration' on what to put on her poster.
Bottom photo: One side of the float with posters attached. More posters were on the other side as well as the back of the float.
Ralph and Char and Rachel and Desiree were working hard also but not pictured.
We left shortly after this for dinner at a local watering hole and karaoke.
