Everyone is gearing up for Victory Day, celebrated tomorrow with big military parades. Actually, a parade here means military--tanks and soldiers. Sister Allen says the old veterans wear their uniforms, and people on the street hand them flowers.
WWII is remembered because 30 million Russians perished.
Church members have a clean-up service project planned at a city park.
(We wonder if you can see the parade on the Yekat web cam. It's at 10:00AM on Saturday on Lenin St--the second column, second frame.)
