Grand Floral Parade! Saturday, June 8, 10am-2pm

There’s Nothing Like a Parade!

Come join us for the Grand Floral Parade, where the Portland Returned Peace Corps Association will be represented by members carrying flags from countries around the world! This year’s parade will be held on Saturday, June 8. The route starts at the Memorial Coliseum, crosses the Burnside bride, and ends up at Providence Park downtown. See a detailed route map here.

Note that GFP organizers require that all marchers complete a “Hold Harmless Form” for liability purposes. Download the form here, sccan and email to Tom DeMeo at service AT crpca.org or mail hard copy to 1002 SE 50th Avenue, Portland, OR 97215.

If interested in holding a flag and adding to the impressive collection of countries Peace Corps served in, follow the link here to sign up!
Let’s make this the biggest parade yet!

All participants get a free t-shirt, with the new logo! If you would be interested in a shirt for the parade- or just in general! – please email newsletter AT crpca.org with your interest, quantity, and size(s). They are still in design, but leaning towards navy polo or pocket T-shirt.

If you are a member of Portland Peace Corps, you get first choice. Sign up before May 11th to ensure the best chance get the flag of your country before we send it out to a wider audience! The early bird gets the worm – or flag, in this case!

We need your help with recruiting! Whoever recruits the most RPCVs to the parade wins a pair of free Timbers or Thorns tickets! Just e-mail president AT crpca.org with the names of folks you recruited.

Hope to see you there!
