Area Matches invited to march in Independence Day Parade

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the National Capital Area has been selected as one of the groups to participate in the July 4th “America’s 2015 Independence Day Parade” in Washington, DC.

The parade steps off at 11:45 AM on July 4th and will be over by 2 PM. Report time on parade day would be around 10:15AM.

There is a reviewing stand area along the parade route where all the parade groups are announced. It is located at 16th/17th Street and Constitution Avenue.

BBBS-NCA is looking for at least 30 matches that would like to march in the parade down Constitution Avenue representing Big Brothers Big Sisters. Participants will wear a Big Brothers Big Sisters T-shirt, khaki pants or jeans, carry American flags and “Fabric Stars” in the parade provided by the parade organizers and our Big Brothers Big Sisters banner.

Each fabric star takes five people to carry; one for each of the points of the stars. The stars are made out of light fabric and weigh next to nothing. This star is no bigger than 18 inches by 18 inches.

If you are interested in participating in what would be an exciting time for you and your Little, email Wilson Llerena here or call him at 301-794-9170, ext. 30 by Friday, May 15th.
