Entries for Vail's Fourth of July parade are currently being accepted through June 30 by organizers of the Vail America Days celebration. The parade will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on July 4. The theme for parade entries is “Made in America.”

Vail's parade is one of the most popular events during the Independence Day holiday, attracting thousands of spectators from throughout the region. Application forms are available on the Town of Vail web site at www.vailgov.com. Entries are available in seven categories: youth, marching, equestrian, motorized, merchant/business, float and most original. Fees vary from $50 for a non-profit to $200 for a business entry.

The parade will begin at Golden Peak and continue west to Hanson Ranch Road, north on Bridge Street, west on Gore Creek Drive, north across the International Bridge, west along Meadow Drive and finally through the LionsHead Mall to the finish.

Volunteers are needed to help organizers keep the parade moving. Duties include holding balloons, carrying banners and assisting with traffic. Contact the Vail America Days staff at 477-3699 or JoAnn Moore at 926-2177 for details.

In addition to the parade, Vail America Days will include activities throughout July Fourth, including a fireworks display at dusk. Here's a preview of what's ahead:

I must say, as a lot as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a wonderful grasp on the subject matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from far more than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt. Vergleich

Your withdrawal bleed usually comes a couple of days after the last pill. But because you’re taking new hormones, your body will take some time to get into the swing of things and may skip a couple of bleeds or reduce amount/time of bleed.. . If you want to skip the bleed for a holiday or something, keep taking the next pack straight after the last one. Won’t do any harm.. . Of course if there’s a chance you’re pregnant this could also be a cause. A visit to the doctor will help you out either way. grain bucket elevator
