Parade and City Tour

Two new Marshalltown school buses were our parade vehicles for the
Oktemberfest parade. The parade started at our old high school, now a junior
high school, and went down Main Street.


A lot of area people showed up for the parade.


We waved back.


This was the first time a decade of classes had a reunion. We got much publicity in
the newspaper, plus airtime.


Do you like the bus banner we designed?

This float was pretty neat.

After Taylor's Maid-Rites, we took a city tour with Andrew Potter
(Chamber of Commerce) as our guide.


Andrew Potter  has been our go to city contact for the past year and provided many
kinds of support and help to make our event a success. Thank you Andrew!


We had a nice send-off for the city tour.

It was a pleasure to get to know Pearl Schaper Ferneau. She represented the class of
1950 and had just celebrated her 90th birthday. Happy birthday Pearl!
