Parade Volunteers and Background
ORGANIZATIONAL MEETINGS and BACKGROUND
DETAILS/QUESTIONS – E-mail Kevin at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is Ann Arbor’s only Memorial Day Parade celebration. Please consider volunteering by logging into the Sign Up Genius website: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/
For additional questions, you may contact the association at email@example.com. As a brief summary, we need:
- Organizers (any and all are welcome!)
We need all the help we can get! E-mail the association’s e-mail for more information.
- Barricade Staff (2 coordinators and 18 barricade bosses)
Barricade staffing involves dragging a small traffic barricade into an assigned street at 9:20am, stopping cars to tell them to slow down and watch for kids, stopping all traffic at 9:50am, then putting the barricade by the side of the road after the last of the parade passes.
- Bike Rope Holders (4)
This is a fun job for anyone whose sons/daughters are going to be riding their bicycle at the back of the parade anyway. They just need to be strong and not afraid to be firm with eager cyclists!
- Cards for Overseas Servicemen and Servicewomen (2)
Set up a station at Glacier Highlands Park with (association provided) cards and art supplies. We send over 100 cards each year!
- Coffee and Donut Stand (8)
Pick up coffee donation, set out cups, creamers, and sugar as well as the all popular donuts!
- Parade Set-up (4)
Prior to the ceremony, we need folks to be around the park lending a hand in giving out directions and ensuring the tables are set up for the various vendors and participants.
- Parade Clean-up (4)
After the events, there is always clean-up, of course! Please consider donating your time for this important task as well.
