I received an email from Jessica Pape regarding some information to organize the Christmas Parade. I was delighted to learn that she and Doreen Friesen are trying to organize a parade for December 21 at 7:00 PM. Here is what Jessica writes.
With that, Doreen Friesen and I (Jessica Pape), thought we would try and help them pull this community together, and give the children a parade. We are looking at having the parade the following Monday after the kids get out of school on Christmas break, Monday, December 21st at 7:00pm, we will start lining up floats at 6:00pm.
However for this to work, we need the communities help! We need businesses and/or organizations (anyone really) to volunteer their time to place a float in the parade; it can be simple or creative! Placing a float in the parade is a great way to get your businesses noticed.
We also need volunteers to help with setting up and taking down barricades, parade safety, and helping us do a general clean sweep of the area when the parade is done. We realize on the short notice, that this may be hard. But we are lucky to have a really great community in Kindersley and I have no doubts that we can pull this off.
We are also looking for a Santa, what would a Santa Claus parade be without a Santa, and a Santa suit? Oh my! Lots to do!
With that, I believe we can pull this off. The holidays are about sharing; being with those we love and cherishing the memories, so let’s do that as a community. We only have 16 days, give or take! Can we do this? Yes we can!
Nonetheless, we have created a Facebook group (facebook.com/groups/442676609275728) to brain storm and organize this event, if you can help out in any way, shape, or size, I want to ask you to join. If you are not on Facebook but want to lend a hand or place a float in the parade you can contact me (Jessica) at (306)-460-5790 or by email JessClarke@live.ca.
