    I am the entertainment committee chairman for the Millersville Community Parade and I’m looking for some Civil War reenactmentment units to participate in this years parade which is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 29, 2011, beginning at 9:00 AM. This years parade will help to celebrate the 250th. anniversary of Millersville Borough and we expect to have our largest parade ever. There is a possibility that at least one Civil War band will be taking part in the parade and I’m trying to locate some other units that would also have an interest in participating. Any unit that is interested, please contact me via e-mail or call me at 717-725-3131. Thank you.
