Help? Calling All Parade Enthusiasts
AESES will be entering a float in the parade to celebrate the centennial of the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike. The parade, which is being hosted by the United Food and Commercial Workers union, will be held on May 25, 2019 and will run from the Exchange District to Memorial Park. Once at Memorial Park, there will be a family area sponsored by the Manitoba Teachers’ Society and a food court sponsored by the Manitoba Association of Health Care Professionals. To finish the day, a concert will be held sponsored by the Canadian Union of Public Employees. A full day event!
What are we looking for exactly? Well, we have enthusiasm. What we do not have is knowledge and experience. If you know how to build a float, starting with getting a truck and trailer and going from there, we would love to have you on board. Or if you have great design ideas with some serious crafting/decorating skills, we’d love to learn from your experience.
Members interested in joining our float team are asked to email the AESES Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
