Call International House now and sign up to carry your nation’s flag on Picnic Day, April 20.

“We traditionally organize a flag brigade to take part in the UC Davis Picnic Day Parade,” said Elisabeth Sherwin, executive director of I-House. “We have more than 100 flags on hand and ask students, faculty, staff or community members to sign up. It’s the most colorful spectacle in the parade,” she added.

So far, we have volunteers for UK, Spain, Germany, Poland, Vietnam, Israel and the Peace Corps.

To join, call up and reserve your space at (530) 753-5007. You will need to come to I-House the morning of Picnic Day at about 8 a.m. to pick up your flag and then return to campus and get in the parade line. After the parade, you will need to return the flag to I-House. You will be all done before noon.
