Join the Fun with ECHHO in this year's Rhody Parade!

It's getting close to Rhody time in Port Townsend and once again ECHHO will be represented in the parade on Saturday, May 18.  Like last year, we will decorate the truck of Walt Hill (our Equipment Manager), and include our "float" in the UGN section of the parade. Those of us who joined the parade last year had a really great time and truly felt the support and gratitude of our community for the services ECHHO provides.

Please consider joining us for this event - it is fun, rewarding and a great way for ECHHO increase visibility in the community. Generally we need to line up around noon that day - we will be in the UGN section. Let us know if you would like to join in and we'll get the details to you when we get nearer the time.
