There will be a table set up for parade registration where entries will get their numbers for placement in the parade. The highlight of the morning will be to see Main Street packed with alumni and patrons catching up on old times and waiting for the Alumni Parade which will begin at 10:30 a.m.

   Following the parade, the Sayre After Prom committee will be serving lunch beginning at 11:30 and serving until 3:00 pm at the county activity barn.  There, folks can enjoy a great meal of pulled pork, sausage, potato salad, coleslaw, baked beans, dessert and drink that is serving a wonderful cause.  The cost is $12 per adult and $6 for kids five to 10 with four and under free of charge.
