Be a Grand Parade Volunteer!
Help keep trash out of our waterways by volunteering to be a part of the "rear detachment" during the annual Monmouth-Independence Rotary Club Grand Parade. Your mission will include riding or walking beside our truck and Claudia (a 14-foot tall Chinook salmon!) as part of the Fourth of July parade, holding up signs, and helping to collect trash along the parade route. Don't miss this unique opportunity to keep our waterways clean, and interact with the cheering public as part of a well-loved Fourth of July tradition!
The Rotary Club Grand Parade route is approximately 3.3 miles long, beginning at Western Oregon University in Monmouth and traveling through Monmouth and Independence on Main and Monmouth Streets to Riverview Park where it ends. We've broken up the 3-mile route into three shorter sections. Volunteers can sign up to join in for just one or two segments, or the whole parade route.
