Colony Days Parade


Colony Days is a 501(c)3 organization supported by community sponsors, volunteers, and donors — we couldn’t do it without you

Volunteers are the heart of Colony Days, as the event is put on by volunteers. The more hands we have, the lighter the work. While we have volunteers that work year-round to organize the event, we also need many volunteers the weekend of the event and the week before.

Here are some volunteer positions we are needing to fill:

October 13, 2017

  • Notification to all businesses and residents that are located along the entire parade route.  Ideally, volunteers speak directly to business personnel and introduce themselves as a Colony Days volunteer and briefly explains a parade is coming. If no person is available to speak with, the flyer is left in the door jam, under a mat or mail slot, etc.
