UTAS Christmas Parade Float Decorating Party Friday, December 13, 9a.m.

Friday December 13, 2019 9:00 AM EST
 
Our UTAS float from 2018

It is time to show your Holiday Spirit! We need volunteer workers for Friday, December 13 at 9:00 a.m. in the Arboretum Shop Garage to decorate the UTAS / UTIA Christmas Parade Float.  We have 9 Christmas trees to decorate (!!!!) with lights and flags that will represent 9 different countries that all celebrate Christmas with Christmas trees. This year’s theme is “Christmas around the World”.  The trailer and truck are to be decorated with lights and snow.  This is always a fun time and a great way to come and meet some people if  you are new to the community or just new to our programs!  
We will serve coffee and drinks and lunch (chili) at 12:00 noon to all workers.  Two volunteers are  also needed to walk in the parade and hand out candy to the kids along the parade site.
Please volunteer – teamwork really does makes the dream work! No need to call or register, just come to the UT Arboretum and follow the signs through the parking lot up to the shop where all the elves will be busy!
