Parades
Andre joined the Argonne Parades team in 2003 as a general volunteer for the WSB-TV "Salute 2 America" parade.

He learned the fast-paced nature of parades very quickly. Veteran parade directors Hobie Pileski and Barkley Russell schooled Andre on organizing large processions through the streets of a major metropolitan city. This included arranging parade units in the proper order, working with ham-radio operators to maintain constant communication with the TV production team, and learning how to improvise when participants didn't show up.

Andre became wheels committee chairman in two short years.

In this role, he coordinates float placement and setup for Atlanta's biggest parades such as the St. Patrick's Parade and the Children's Christmas Parade.

Andre's favorite float is the "Santa Claus" float, because it always brings smiles to kids' faces when they see the float during the parade.
