The Homecoming Parade

9/17/13 - At the Troy High Homecoming Parade, we the Hammerheads had an important part in it. Before the parade, volunteer members met up at Boulan Middle School to prep for our mile-long walk. After signing in, some members made last-minuite tweeks and check-ups on the T-shirt robot to ensure optimal performance during the parade. We divided the candy amongst ourselves into plastic bags that was going to be tossed later, then got in our respective position for the parade. We were ready to go anytime.
