This is your Mama talking to you, so please pay attention, and do what I say. You will be very happy that you did.

I’m sure you have made your plans to come downtown and get in the middle of Parade Day. This Saturday, 10 a.m. downtown Malakoff.

They’ve spent days getting ready for you. A lot of them have goodies for you to snack on, and every one
