City of Hope employees are invited to assist with decorating floats for the 121st Tournament of Roses Parade.
Marking another year of collaboration, City of Hope and the city of Duarte will again have a float in the parade; this year’s float is themed “Harvesting Good Health.” The theme for the Jan. 1., 2010, Rose Parade is “A Cut Above the Rest.”
|The 2010 City of Hope and city of Duarte Rose Parade float features fruits and vegetables.|
Volunteer decorators are needed to work on an array of floats from Dec. 26 through Dec. 29, between 8 a.m. and 11 p.m. A minimum of one six-hour shift is required. Volunteers may set their own time to volunteer and are welcome to work on more than one day.
Fiesta Float supervisors oversee and assign the decoration tasks. There are jobs for volunteers of all ages and artistic skills; however, no one under age 12 is allowed in the work areas. A parent or legal guardian must accompany all minor children.
Each volunteer decorator must bring a pair of scissors. Weather conditions can vary from warm days to very cold nights and rain so volunteers should dress appropriately and wear shoes that are sturdy and waterproof. The glues used on the floats do not wash out, so volunteers are recommended to wear older clothes.
Fiesta Floats’ decorating facility is located at 16016 Avenida Padilla in Irwindale. Parking is available at the end of Adelante Avenue — the street south of the facility.
Passes are required for volunteers. For more information or to get a volunteer decorator pass, contact Josie Perez at ext. 67307 or email@example.com.
