What an exciting adventure participating in the K-Days parade today! Thank you Alaina Thursby for the use of your pickle logo “Don’t get your baby pickled!” which led to some great t-shirts and a pickle mascot in the parade! Other than sore feet, sticky hands and a really long wait for the parade to start, what an enjoyable and action packed community event! Thank you to all the 39 agencies and staffs that came out for the fun and supported FASD prevention awareness!
