Civil Service workers: Walk in the Homecoming parade with the council!

Civil Service Council at Homecoming.

The Civil Service Council participates in the University's annual Homecoming parade in October.

The Civil Service Council invites all Civil Service employees to join them in walking in the Illinois State University Homecoming parade on Saturday, October 21.

Building a legacy takes all kinds of workers, and all Civil Service workers are warmly invited to walk in the parade with the council with signs that will include their names and the words “I am Civil Service!” All Illinois State University Civil Service employees are invited to participate. Signs are limited and available on a first come, first served basis. Markers will be available to participants so they can write their names.

To participate please email Holly Sanford at hlstein2@ilstu to get the parade route and participation information. Check-in for the parade begins at 8:30 a.m. at the corner of University Street and College Avenue. “Step off” is at 10 a.m. Participants are encouraged to wear their best Redbird gear. The Civil Service community is strong when it stands together!
