Many volunteers are needed to help with children and family activities, parade line-up, barricade watching, and for set-up and tear down throughout the day on July 4.
Most volunteer assignments are in prime locations along the parade route and a great way to celebrate Independence Day with family or friends. All volunteers will receive a FREE lunch and T-shirt! Anyone interested in volunteering may contact Mary Sue Derks, Volunteer Coordinator, at email@example.com.
Approximately 75 to 100 volunteers are needed to fill multiple shifts from 8:00 am. to 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 4.
