cardboard tubes from paper towel rolls and toilet paper
multiples of small objects (bottle caps, metal tabs from beverage cans, buttons . . .)

The River of Light Lantern Parade is just around the corner! Saturday, December 5th
Check out our website for up to date information. The students are working hard on their lanterns and we’re looking forward to a great event!

Important to know now: We will have 2 starting points for the parade this year: TBPS and Rusty Parker Park.
1.    We’re looking for a number of families to start the parade at Rusty Parker Park.
·  Come to TBPS between 3:45- 4:15 - pick up your lanterns and drive/park down by Rusty Parker.
·  Pick up poles at Rusty Parker and gather with CBMS Junk Band to lead the parade up Main Street.
 2.   Parking will be an issue - so we’re asking folks - as much as possible to park downtown. There will be NO PARKING in the front of the school or on Armory Drive behind the school. Only the back parking lots will be open for parking.
