The Lewis & Clark Exploratory Center is Number 47 in the Dogwood Parade line-up tomorrow! We're taking the Red Pirogue on a ride! (Thank you, Anne Tufts, for the beautiful trailer.) So look for us in the big red boat going up Market Street... The parade starts at 10:50, so 11:30 is probably a safe bet for when we'll be on the hill. Visitors welcome pre-parade alongside the County Office Building.
Our new banner graces the side of the boat
