For those who do not dig through your past posts, the balloon festival has been canceled due to fear over Covid.
We need to go to this!
When does volunteer registration open up? The website says "Check back July 1st when Volunteer Registration Opens." but it seems to not be open yet.
Any balloons want to surprise the Plano class of 2021 with a flyover? There are graduation ceremonies June 2-5 (gates open at 6:30pm) at Clark stadium. These seniors have been through a tough year. โ˜น๏ธ
A favorite memory from 2009 PBF. Being on the volunteer crew and getting assigned to Miss Daisy!
Please consider recreating this page on https://mewe.com/ It is very similar to facebook.
