I will have a Tastefully Simple table set up near the Police Station. Stop by and mention Meetup and get a discount on your order that day.
I will be working the event, so I won't set up a meeting place or time. Location is at The Billerica Town Hall on Boston Road/Good Street.
Parade is at 10 AM Sat 9/14. Events start after that. Most Craft booths are on the front lawn of the Town Hall. Vendors, food, other activities are towards the back field past the Police and Fire Departments.

      Hi Darlene is bandit your dog? If so try to look for the dog park informational booth. We are a group of dog lovers working on building a dog park. On Sunday there are lots of dog related events and booths on the rear field near skating rink. I will be working booth on Sunday so if you are there drop by and say hi.

    I'm planning to come and have invited my friend Marjorie. I am familiar with Tastefully Simple and will make a point of stopping by to see what's new. Anybody know what time the fireworks will happen?
