Parade of Champions on Purchase Street, Saturday 8:45am

Set your alarm Saturday morning.

The Rye City Council added an last minute item at its meeting tonight to approve a request of the Rye Football Association to close a portion of Purchase Street on December 20, 2008 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

Local merchants and the Garnet community will hold a ceremony beginning at 8:45am on the Village Green formally recognizing the outstanding accomplishments of the Fall 2008 sports champions of Rye High School — the New York State Championship girls soccer and boys football teams. We are guessing the organizers did not check with the team players about the early hour of the festivities. Last time this writer checked high school students prefer evenings and all times after 10 or 11am.

The Rye High School jazz band, a capella group, cheerleaders, bag pipes and 'Rye dignitaries' will also be on hand. The event is being produced by the alumni, parents and friends of the Rye football and soccer associations. Rye merchants will happily take your money after the parade.
