Library Float Wows in Old Settlers Parade

Congrats aplenty to Broadway Gal and her expert team of assemblers, designers, and, bringing it all together, parade participants on this year's library float in the annual Old Settlers Parade.  As was the case last year, the library float once again wowed the spectators, who were dazzled by the colossal magnificence of it all.  Or the sun could have been in their eyes.  Your call.

No kidding, the library float was spectacular!  Broadway Gal's elite team created and designed the theme, which was Are You Evergreen?  This, of course, posed the question to onlookers:  Do you have a library card, and, if so, is your library a member of the Evergreen Indiana (E.I.) consortium?  If you are a card-holding patron at Mooresville Public Library, Morgan County Public Library, Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library, Greenwood Public Library, or any of the more than 90 public, school, academic, or specialty libraries across the state who belong to E.I., then your proud answer would be in the affirmative.  In addition to the visual art of the float and the monster truck pulling it (well, it was a mighty big truck!), a sound system was included, playing a series of library songs, including Broadway Gal's own now-famous (perhaps infamous) parody, "Librarians Do Taio Cruz."  If you haven't already seen it, you should be ashamed of yourself.

This year's parade performance team was highly disciplined, well-drilled, and, in a word, full of panache.  (Okay, that's three words.)  Once again, Broadway Gal has gotten the best performances from her crew of talented parade teamsters.  Want some photos?  It's about time.

Hope you had a chance to watch the Old Settlers Parade, which never disappoints.  It has a long, storied history that Scowl-Face would only be too happy to drone on about.  We even have some historic photos at the Library about the parade.  Here's one of them.

Great job, everybody!  You make our Library look so good.

Proud to Work at MPL,

P.S.  Our musical closer just had to be "Librarians Do Taio Cruz" (2010), written and directed by Broadway Gal, and performed by my colleagues at Mooresville Public Library.
