Contribute to Detroit’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

If I weren’t down in North Carolina right now, there’s no question I’d be at Detroit Synergy’s volunteer event at The Parade Company tonight. I would love to work on some of the marvelous floats that will grace the streets of the D during America’s Thanksgiving Parade, which is coming up in just a few weeks. But, I’m out of town and won’t be back until Sunday evening, so maybe next year. Those of you fortunate enough to be in Detroit can participate, though (you lucky ducks) — here’s how:

Head over to The Parade Company, located at 9500 Mount Elliot, at 6:30 for Detroit Synergy’s monthly membership meeting and then stick around for the volunteer event from 8:30 to 10 pm. Or, if you can’t make the meeting, just head over to The Parade Company at 8:30 pm.

Once there, you’ll help with the construction and painting of floats and props for this year’s parade and learn some unique things about the non-profit company that brings America’s Thanksgiving Parade to the world, and is in charge of such spectacular events as the Target Firworks, Detroit International River Days and more.

If you’ve never participated in a Detroit Synergy meeting or project and aren’t thrilled with the prospect of going alone, don’t fret; anyone that wants to participate or learn about the organization is invited. This is a wonderful pro-Detroit organization that I highly recommend getting involved with. And even if you go there knowing no one, you’ll come out with a handful of new acquaintances and probably a few new friends.
