A parade is planned around 11 a.m. and there will be games, and door prizes. In addition, food available for purchase throughout the day. Music by the Wilders will start at 1 p.m. and Arnie Marchand and Andrew Joseph will be on hand for book signings.

Alumni and everyone are welcome to attend, said Helm.
