As has been our tradition in years past, our club will again support the 2018 Parker Christmas Carriage Parade on Saturday, December 8th.  The parade begins at noon.
We need about 8-10 members to volunteer for this year's event serving as parade route safety marshals between 11:00AM-1:00PM.  The parade has become a Parker tradition and is always well-attended.  Safety marshals help make sure that attendees remain on the sidewalk so that the parade route is unobstructed.  Those in attendance readily comply and our service is both fun & a great support to our community.  Wear your Rotary t-shirt or vest and show the face of the Rotary Club of Parker.  There are few better places to watch & be part of the parade.
We will need one of our volunteers to serve as our "group leader" the day of the event.  I will handle the volunteer sign-ups but will be out of the country the day of the actual parade.  Please let me know if you would be willing to serve in this capacity - the event is well-coordinated by the Town of Parker so there is really little required of the leader. I am attaching a link to the Town's carriage parade website for more information:
Please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to volunteer to serve at the parade:  Mike Endres  #720-352-4227 (leave a message if there's no answer).  I will also have a sign-up sheet to circulate at our next weekly meeting which is not until Thursday, November 29th.
Come on out and support our community at this popular annual event and have a good time!
