AITP helps with San Antonio River Parade

Members of AITP helped "in a major" way at the 2004 Ford Holiday River Parade on Friday night, November 26, 2004 as the beautiful San Antonio Riverwalk was turned into a holiday wonderland! 20 floats actually floated on the San Antonio river. All were decorated to the theme "A Children's Christmas". When you combine a full moon, mild temperatures (I was in shorts and a polo shirt), 122,000 colored lights in the trees lining the Riverwalk, and 150,000 people - you have a holiday party, San Antonio style!

Here was the time-line:
Noon Volunteer Check-In area setup
2pm Captain Check-in
3pm Volunteer Check-in
7pm Lights, Camera & Parade
8pm+ Fold/Stack Chairs and enjoy the rest of the evening

AITP members from all over Region 3 came to not only see the parade but help out:

Parade Chairman:
Kevin Jetton
(San Antonio chapter liaison)

Seating Captain:
Everett Welch
(San Antonio chapter President)

Seating Volunteers:
Teresa Hickerson & Family
(Region 3 President & EF Regent)

Brian & Margie Batchelder
(Big Country Chapter Member)

JoAnn Gude & Darlene English
(San Antonio chapter members)

Also, four of my e-commerce course students from Texas State University - San Marcos also helped out (for extra credit of course).

The parade will be broadcast in 52 television markets (live or on a tape-delay basis) - many of which have AITP chapters. As you enjoy the holiday season and notice a broadcast of the famed San Antonio Holiday River Parade in your town - watch it, enjoy it with your family and remember that AITP helped make it all happen!

Happy Holidays from AITP and San Antonio!
