Volunteers needed to spread holiday cheer for parades

As winter weather and familiar jingles signal the arrival of the festive season, members of the Brock community are invited to show their spirit by accompanying the Brock float in two holiday parades.

The St. Catharines and Thorold Santa Claus parades on Sunday, Nov. 17 and Saturday, Nov. 30, respectively, will welcome crowds of warmly dressed volunteers who will accompany Brock mascot Boomer the Badger and the University’s holiday-themed float along the routes.

Tanya Bradley, Brock’s Manager of Student and Community Experience, said the parades offer a simple way for participants to get involved locally.

“Participating in the parades is a great way to start the holiday season and demonstrate Brock spirt in the community,” she said. “This year, we are offering a free shuttle from Brock to each parade to make participating even easier.”

Students who take part can also have their experience tracked on the University’s Campus-wide Co-curriculum under the spirit domain.

Volunteers and spectators should dress for the weather and be prepared to be outdoors for approximately two hours.

Interested participants are encouraged to RSVP online for the St. Catharines Santa Claus Parade and/or Thorold Santa Claus Parade.
