Volunteering for the 2015 Parade
Volunteers are the key to planning, organizing and carrying out the events of Frontier Days week. For years a large group of civic mined volunteers known as the Dragoons carried out all the aspects of bringing Frontier Days to life at the Fort. Now in their sixth year, a new group made up of mostly members who are involved with planning the 2015 event. They are the Fort Dodge Frontier Days Committee. Our committee invites you to find out how easy it is to get involved and share your interest skills and join in helping Fort Dodge Frontier Days take place.
Parade Leads: two persons lead and direct different aspects of the parade, reporting to the parade coordinator.
Parade Secretaries: two volunteers that will help in the mailing of entry forms, answering inquiries and correspondence to register entries and placement in the parade line up.
Staging Coordinators: twenty volunteers to answer questions on the morning of the parade and guide entries to their staging place in getting the parade set up and ready to go. These people will stay within a half block area doing their staging.
Intersection Coordinators: 40 volunteers for the morning of the parade that will guide traffic and keep safety a priority throughout the parade route. All intersections of the parade route will have barriers stopping through traffic.
Parade Guides: 80 parade guides to watch an area on the route and help with keeping the parade moving safely and on time.
Reviewing Stand Coordinators: two organizers to plan and setup the reviewing stand on parade day.
