Dacula Memorial Day Parade Print

PARADE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

 

AS OF MAY 15th:  VOLUNTEER COUNT IS 205 OF 286

 

We need 286 volunteers to join us as we carry signs that individually represent Fallen Georgia Soldiers down the 1.1 mile Dacula Memorial Day Parade route.  The signs that volunteers will be carrying are the same signs that line the race course of the Fallen Heroes of Georgia road race.  These soldiers gave their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan, and now we have the chance represent them in an event that honors and remembers their life lived and lost. 

The signs of our Fallen will be given out on a first come and first serve basis to those who had  RVSP'd to the address listed below.  Our involvement in this parade represents the true meaning of this often misunderstood holiday, so please don’t miss volunteering your time for this very meaningful cause.   I could go on and on about how powerful this experience is for all who attend, so come out with your family and friends and make some great memories.

RSVP:  Just email  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  with your number of volunteers and you're in!
