Rio Communities Founder’s Day Parade
Saturday, September 20
Volunteer radio operators are needed for the RC Parade. Rio Communities is a VCARA served agency, and we have been asked to provide radio communications support on this first major event in their history. The parade route is from the golf course to Hwy 47, ending at the East parking lot by our clubhouse.
We need to provide five hams with HTs for various locations along the parade route, and will take no more than three hours of our time, 1200-1400 local time. This is our chance to bond with our home community, for their benefit and ours.
Please contact Charlie NM5CL with your availability to participate.
