Downtown Organization Needs Volunteers for Holiday Parade

Volunteers are needed to help staff the 60th Annual Holiday Parade, from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30.

Gather some co-workers and volunteer as a team!

Business First Bank has had a team of volunteers out along the parade route at their closest intersection — Figueroa Street — for the past four years and will be out again for their fifth consecutive year. Start your own tradition this Holiday Parade and enjoy a front row view of the parade with your office mates. Be the first to reserve your intersection!

Everyone is welcome to volunteer whether alone or with people you know. Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and make new friends while supporting and celebrating your community.

All volunteers are needed as Parade Monitors along the parade route to help with crowd control and the flow of the parade. You must be able to stand outside in nighttime temperatures for the duration of the shift. Volunteers are given a long-sleeve Parade Volunteer T-shirt to wear during the parade and that they can keep afterward. Refreshments will be provided before the parade.

A 30-minute volunteer training will take place at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27 at the Downtown Organization offices.

To volunteer for the Holiday Parade or for other volunteer opportunities, contact Georgette at 805.962.2098 x23 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
