The DuPage Libertarians will be marching in the Village of Itasca’s Memorial Day Parade, which starts at St. Matthew’s Church @ Bryn Mawr and Catalpa Ave (check in time is at 8:30am) and ends near Usher Park.

It’s a simple parade route with a modest crowd, an easy way to start off the year. We need people to pass out literature, to pass out candy, to hold signs, and to lead the parade by carrying the banner. We will have Claire Ball for IL Comptroller with us, so this should be a fun, relaxing, and productive event this year!

Time: Parade kicks off at 9:30am, assembly at 8:30am
