|Volunteer Open House, 15 May 2011
Volunteer Open House will be held at Middle Amana Park. This event is
to give ALL members an opportunity to hang out, eat, talk, dance, and
have some fun. We will be recruiting volunteers for CelticFest 2011
there as well.
Why? Because CelticFest 2011 will be held in Amana this year. As such,
many things that were covered for us at previous venues (such as
portable toilets, fencing, and so on) must be handled by us now. We
estimate we'll need roughly 50 volunteers to make the event go smoothly
this year! But here's the good part -- if we get 50, we'll have enough
that very few people will have to work the entire day of the event! So
And if you cannot volunteer...attend the open house anyway. No obligation, we just want to have some FUN!
