Pooper Scoopers: 9:30 AM until parade is over. 2 groups of 2 needed: These volunteers will be able to participate in the parade so they can dress up if they wish to try to win an award for being something unique in the parade, but their duty is to follow the horses, mules, goats, and pick up the poop that has been dropped along the parade route. One of the groups of 2 needs to be in the middle of the parade and the other at the end of the parade. After the event is over, they can deposit the poop into the dumpster at the town parking lot.
