Do You Enjoy the Parade?

It takes work during the year and on Parade Day for the #TampaBayVeteransParade to happen. Without the support of the community to prepare the Parade and new input and contacts it is not likely the Parade will continue after this years Parade. WE NEED YOU!

Behind The Scenes

What no one ever saw is Mr Fortino donated about 15 hours a week working social medial, web site monitoring, talking to participants, chasing sponsors, the line up, artwork, and answering the phones so we always had a personal touch.

Do you have 1 hour?

That is a tough person to replace. We know none of you have 15 hours to donate a week and more as the parade date approaches. But do you have ONE HOUR a WEEK to donate.We need a morning person to check the facebook page and twitter page. Scroll through our pages we follow and if you deem a post appropriate add one or two posts to either provide a resource for veterans or coming home videos or the sad part the announcement of a veterans killed in the line of duty. No political posts or derogatory comments about either the prior or current Commander in Chief. So if we can get 14 people to donate 1 hour each that part of Mr Fortino's social media duties is filled

Personal Communications savvy?

So that will take care of the social media so how about answering the phones. We use the google phone system for the 813-995-1766 number. So we can have it go to voice mail and it can be checcked once or twice a day as it gets closer.

Thank you to everyone for your support and patience as we tackle the 26th annual #TampaBayVeteransParade. We look forward to seeing you there!
