OCERI Members,
The Rhody parade is coming up on May 22,2022. We are planning to have the club Communications Trailer in the parade. To do this it will take a small group of members to help decorate the trailer with Rhody flowers. The decoration will take place May 21,2022 at 2:00PM.

The deco party members will need to bring flowers fresh cut from their Rhododendron bushes. It will take about five members and their flowers to complete this task. What I need is a commitment from five members by May 13,2022. If I get enough folks to participate, OCERI will have a Float in this year's parade. This has not happened for two years due to covid, and it would be nice to show Florence we still have an active Ham Radio Club.
