PART of Westford – WB1GOF for many years now has supported the Westford Kiwanis by providing communication support of their parade. So once again, PART been asked to provide communications for the Westford Kiwanis Apple Blossom Parade. This year the parade is on Saturday, May 18th, 2019.
The parade starts around 10 AM near the junction of Graniteville Rd and Main St. and ending at Abbot School. Volunteer hams will need to be available from 8:30/9:00 AM until 11:00 AM/noon at the latest. All you need to bring is a 2 meter handheld and some good walking shoes. We need about a dozen operators for this event.
Most volunteers will be assigned to “shadow” various members of the AB Parade committee. Our actual duty will not start till about 9:00 AM but we need to get into the center of town before the roads are closed and we need to establish our assignments by 8:30 AM or so.
If you’ve never done public service events, this is a great first time event. We will pair you up with a “veteran” ham so you get the chance to be part of a team. Parades are always fun… so why not join us on a Saturday morning, bring the kids and your XYL, bring mom and dad, enjoy.
Please contact me if you are interested and can assist or need more information.
Thanks in advance for your help.
