“We are looking for people to help the organizing committee, as well as volunteering for the event on July 1st,” says Elaine Downton , Recreation Coordinator located at the Allan Reuter Centre and also project lead for the parade. “It’s an excellent opportunity to refine your skills and contribute to the community,” she notes.
The City requires 75-100 volunteers for this event including Parade Marshalls, Children’s Activity Area volunteers and a Secretary for the Board. It’s easy to become part of the team. The City of Cambridge has flexible scheduling available that is geared to when you are free to volunteer. There are even opportunities to volunteer that are conducive for high school students.
