For Volunteers:

We welcome volunteers in several areas. There should be something enjoyable for everyone. Past volunteers have reported that they thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Here are some of the possibilities.

1. Setup from 8AM to 10AM on the 14th. This includes setting up tents, tables, and signs.
2. If you like taking photos and have some experience with Social Media, we would love help recording the day’s events.
3. If you have old Tee shirts you’d like to donate, we could use them for our make your own reusable bag project.
4. We need help supervising several craft type projects like pumpkin painting, making Tee shirt bags, or building bird houses.
5. We need a helper for the educator in our Nature Center.
6. There will be wagon rides, and we could use someone to do traffic control.
7. There is a presenter who demonstrates making rope the old way. He would love some help with the children who have an opportunity to help make rope.
8. There are several presenters who would appreciate help such as the DEC reps who will educate visitors about waste and recycling.
9. We need folks to offer relief to presenters and exhibitors throughout the day.
10. We need help supervising our silent auction and raffle area.
11. There are bake sales and food sales.
12. Clean up and break down from 3-4:30.
