Current Community Service Opportunities




 The Lawrence Old-Fashioned Christmas Parade ( is seeking volunteers for its annual horse-drawn carriage event, to be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1. 


The organizers need spotters (9 persons), who will be stationed along the parade route and radio just ahead to the announcers so they know which entries are coming up.


They are also looking for a group of volunteers to coordinate and hand out fliers listing the entries and sponsors to spectators just ahead of the parade start time (10 a.m. to 11 a.m.), along Mass Street between 7th St. and 12th St. 


High school and adult volunteers are welcome, although note that this parade usually draws a large crowd to downtown and volunteers will not be closely supervised. All volunteers are encouraged to work in small groups. It is strongly encouraged for younger kids buddy up with an adult or older student as the event moves along between a fast pace and a road gait! 


For more information or to volunteer, contact parade announcer Chairpersons, Crystal & Steven Miles at by Oct. 15, 2018.
