Thank you for your participation and support as you walk with us to represent our martial arts school! I have attached pictures of the information we covered in our meeting in case you were not there on Tuesday. I've also copy and pasted information I received about our line up schedule and the route of the parade in case anyone was curious. It looks like a decent amount of information so I hope you have a few minutes to spare.
