A limited production of “Porch Parade Roses for Hope” lawn signs will be distributed to early registrants during the week of May 24th. All decorations should be complete and ready for show by May 31st. The Porch Parade celebration runs from May 31st to June 13th, 2021. You can register at: paradinginplace.com.
