The West Seattle Grand Parade
Saturday, July 23rd, 11 am
What’s a great way to support Our Lady of Guadalupe during the summer, get a big head start on earning commitment hours for your family, and have huge amounts of fun? Why, it’s the West Seattle Grand Parade! It’s coming up in a few months, and we’d like to build on the success we’ve had over the past few years with our perennially top-ranked entry in the Community Division. The most important part: getting more parents, students, and teachers involved from the OLG family! Here’s how you can help:
We REALLY, REALLY need another truck to for the parade this year! Please volunteer to drive your rig for us in the parade! We’ll decorate it on parade day and hook up our sound system to it for our dancers. Please volunteer!
OLG “Precision” Dance Team:
This is what puts us over the top! Get ready for three dance numbers we’ll do the entirety of the 1-mile route! Kids, parents, teachers, everyone: we welcome you! The more we have in the group, the better OLG is represented to the crowd.
We always need volunteers to walk the route, hand out candy, hold up banners, and wave at the crowd. Please get involved! It’s lots of fun!
If you’d like to participate, call Brian at (206) 937-2855. Got some great ideas on how to make our parade entry even better? Please include that, too! Phone calls will be made in the next few weeks to line up volunteers and get things ready to go!
