Please find the request from Paul Topolski, W1SEX below:
Fellow Radio Amateurs,
The City of Gardner is celebrating our centennial, 100 years as a city, with a large parade on Sunday, September 17, 2023 at 13:00 hours.
The City of Gardner Office of Emergency Management is seeking assistance from the ham radio community to provide safety and parade logistics communications. We need about fifteen hams to shadow division Marshalls and three command/relay trailers. A minimum of nine hams will need to be able to walk the parade route of up to 1.8 miles. The first half mile is on a slight uphill grade but it’s all downhill from there. Hams are requested to marshal at 11:00 hours and the parade steps off at 13:00.
To volunteer, please reply to email@example.com
Please feel free to forward this message to any hams that you know may be interested in helping out.
Be safe es 73,
Paul Topolski, W1SEX, Director
City of Gardner Office of Emergency Management
BARC Public Service Chair
