The Spirit of Princeton invites members of the community to join the team of volunteers who now produce three popular and patriotic town events.
Those events are the Memorial Day Parade (the Saturday before Memorial Day), the Flag Day Commemoration (June 14) and the Veterans’ Day Ceremony (Nov. 11).
The basic requirements are enthusiasm and a willingness to pitch in. In addition to help on the day of the celebrations, the organization will use the special talents (marketing, computer, organizational, fundraising, financial) of the volunteer to help with the planning and implementing process. The time commitment over the course of a year is probably no more than 20 hours.
A charitable non-profit group of local residents dedicated to bringing the community together through the above-mentioned civic events, the Spirit of Princeton became operational 21 years ago and is led by Mark Freda and Kam Amizarfari.
The recently deceased Ray Wadsworth, who founded the organization with Herb Hobler, led the organization until his death, a few days after the 2018 Memorial Day Parade.
Over the years, thousands of individuals of all ages from throughout the greater Princeton area have enjoyed honoring active duty, retired and deceased military service men and women, who put their lives on the line to protect everyone living in the United States and America’s democratic values.
Anyone interested in contributing to of the Spirit of Princeton with some sweat equity (financial support also appreciated) please contact Mark Freda at email firstname.lastname@example.org.
