Attention All Bay County, Florida Democrats:
The Bay County, Florida Democratic Executive Committee (DEC) and Democratic Women’s Club of Bay County, FL (DWCBC), Inc. are partnering together to participate in the two annual Holiday parades in Bay County – the Jaycee’s Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 7, 2013, at 7 p.m., in downtown, and the Optimist Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 14, 2013, at 4 p.m., at Pier Park.
Democratic United States Congressional Candidate Gwen Graham will be in attendance, as well as Democratic State Representative District 6 Candidates Jamie Shepard and Ryan Singleton. All statewide and local Democratic candidates are invited to participate.
We will have a 16 foot flat bed trailer pulled by a truck.
We need volunteers for the following:
- Decorate the trailer.
- Volunteers to walk on either side of the trailer and hand out candy at both parades.
- Volunteers to ride on the trailer at both parades.
Decorating will be on Friday, December 6, 2013, 6 p.m. at Lisa Nixon’s (DEC’s Corresponding Secretary and parade coordinator) Home, 3604 Lane Road, Panama City, FL 32404 in Springfield off of Transmitter Road close to Game Farm Road.
Volunteers participating in the Jaycee’s Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 7, 2013, in downtown, need to arrive at the Marina no later than 5 p.m. We are in Lot A Slot 8. Lot A is on the side of the Civic Center facing toward Harrison Avenue on the opposite side of the water.
Volunteers participating in the Optimist Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 14, 2013, at Pier Park, need to be at Pier Park at 3 p.m. I previously said 2, but 3 is now fine. The route
is South on Powell Adams to Front Beach Road, west to the Pier Park entrance, then north through the center of Pier Park back to Walmart. Slots are on a first come, first serve basis so, when you arrive, just look for our flat bed trailer, which will be pulled by a truck with our banners on it.
Jaycee’s will have their Blanket Brigade walking the street with red blankets asking for donations for the Annual Kids Shopping Tour. Feel free to bring donations and/or spread the word for parade attendees to bring donations.
Thanks so much!
