Let’s Love a Parade
Join us on Saturday, September 8 for this year’s Inver Grove Heights Parade. Let’s show the city our spirit and awesomeness by having one of the largest delegations we’ve ever had. Plan to meet on the corner of Cahill and 80th Street (by Simley High School) by 10:45 am. We’re in the 8th position, so we’ll be close to the front, and we’ll be heading north to Buckley Way. Don’t forget your uniforms!

Individual and Team Opportunities
Don’t forget, the state tournaments for bocce and softball have been moved to mid-September.
Congrats to Stars’ athletes Sarah Haugen, Russell Greenhalge, and Charlie Rea, who represented Minnesota in swimming, bowling, and bocce, respectively. Charlie brought home a gold medal, a silver medal, and a bronze medal. Way to go Charlie! Russell also came home with a gold medal. And, Sarah showed her strength as a swimmer by bringing home four gold medals. We’re in awe, Sarah.
