STAR CITY PARADE SEEKING MARSHALS

Volunteers are still needed for the 23rd annual Star City Holiday Parade Saturday, December 1 in downtown Lincoln. The parade is presented by Verizon Wireless and produced by Updowntowners, Inc. and the City of Lincoln.

Parade Director Deb Johnson said about 80 more people are needed to serve as Parade Marshals. Marshals are stationed along the parade route to help keep spectators safe. They also assist with street closing and opening and provide information on the locations of restrooms and food. Volunteer marshals must be at least 18 years old and able to stand for three hours.

"The most important duty is to smile and be friendly," said Johnson. "Itís a great way to be involved in the parade without a big commitment of time."

Volunteers are required to attend a short evening training session the week before the parade. Volunteers age 12 and older also are needed to be banner carriers. Those who are interested in volunteering can sign up online at www.starcityholidayparade.org. For more information, call 434-6902.
