Niles July 4 parade volunteers need, route info

The Village of Niles is sponsoring the 4th of July Parade on Tuesday, July 4 at 8:45 a.m.

Volunteers are needed to carry sponsorship banners throughout the parade. A banner carrier has to be able to stand for long periods of time and walk the 1.5-mile parade route. We always hope for good weather, but it might be raining or it might be very hot. Check-in time is no later than 8:15 a.m. Tuesday, July 4.

Adults are welcome to volunteer, and so are young people. This is an excellent opportunity to earn service hours for school, church, or scouting projects.
