Lions Club Parade Needs Volunteers

Saturday August 19, 2023, 4 P.M. will be the Bellbrook Lions Club parade. The BARC club supports this event as a public service event and is typically the end of our public service events for the summer. I need at least 12 club members to assist with emergency communications and staging of line up of parade participants.

The parade events are an excellent opportunity for new ham operators and club members to experience working with a controlled net operation. The controlled net operations provide training for an emergency activation. I will place new members with an experienced member to learn their assignment. A HT is helpful to have but not needed.

We gather at the Centerville Community Church on SR-725 and Vemco Dr. by 3:15 P.M. for assignments and updates. The parade starts from Vemco Dr. at 3:45 P.M. and is usually completed by 5:15 P.M.

I need to start planning our list of volunteers, if you can assist with the parade please send me an email soon. Additional information will be provided closer to event.
