    All Gretchen’s House Centers will be closed Friday, July 4th 2008
    in observance of Independence Day.

    Last year, we marched in the Ann Arbor Jaycee’s Parade
    to celebrate 25 years of providing
    quality child development programs.

    We’re not marching this year, but the parade is a great family event.
    This year’s parade starts at 10 a.m. at the corner of State and William,
    then travels north on State, west on Liberty,
    south on Main, and east on William.

    (Complete slideshow of last year’s parade photos is here.)
