We had a great time at the Erie Optimists Homecoming Parade and we hope you did too. The candy was in abundance and the school spirit was even more plentiful. Thanks to all who volunteered and to those who participated, it was a huge success. Pictures below capture some of the fun. We can’t wait to see you next year and hope you can share these fun pictures with others who want to get involved next year. It’s all about raising great kids.
