The Project Pride folks have sent out an alert that pre-registrations are way down this year. The registrations are important as they give the Howard Days organizers an idea of how many people are planning to attend so they can make sure there is enough food ordered for the Friday lunch, the banquet and the Saturday evening barbecue. The registrations also ensure they have enough chairs, supplies, etc. at the various venues where the panels and other activities are held.
If you are going to Cross Plains next week and have not pre-registered, it is not too late — you can send your payment ($15.00 per person) via PayPal to [email protected] or contact Arlene or Era Lee via e-mail to make the necessary arrangements.
So everyone quit procrastinating, get those registrations in and help the fine folks with Project Pride organize the best Howard Days ever.
Update: Bill Cavalier reports that the Friday night Banquet has been moved back into the Community Center due to the low number of pre-registrations. So far, only 73 reservations have been made. Arlene is working on a better seating arrangement for the smaller space. The $15.00 registration fee is for the three meals only — there is no charge for touring the house, attending the panels and other activities.
