Subject: Chrtistmas Parade Info

On Saturday, November 30, 2019, the Jimmy Liner Memorial Christmas parade will be combined with the Old Fashioned Christmas and Bicentennial Celebration in downtown Athens, Tn. The parade will begin at 5 PM. 

The McMinn County Radio Club has been a supporter of this community event for many years and we have been asked to assist again this year. We will help with the parade line up at the Athens Middle School beginning at 3 PM. We ask for MCARC members to assist with line-up in the upper and lower parking lots of the school. The MCARC trailer will be on site to provide communications for folks assisting with the line up as well as with the parade progression. In addition we need MCARC members to be stationed along the parade route to help communicate "gaps" to the parade lead. We also have been asked to provide any portable lighting, such as generators and utility lights for this event. We are planning on keeping this lighting going until after parade participants have returned to the parking area at the end of the parade. If you have lighting and a generator your assistance in this will be appreciated.  

We encourage MCARC members to come out and support this club activity again this year. Thanks for helping.
